NEW YORK — Teen apparel retailer Deb Shops posted earnings in its third-quarter results, reversing a year-ago loss produced by a one-time $7.4 million charge from the sale of its Atlantic Book Store subsidiary.

The Philadelphia-based specialty retailer with 327 stores under the Deb, Deb Plus and Tops ‘n Bottoms names said it recorded income of $3.3 million, or 24 cents a diluted share, against a loss amounting to $289,000, or 2 cents, in the same quarter last year. However, when excluding the loss, earnings were $4.3 million, or 32 cents, last year. Net sales for the quarter were $81.2 million, a 1 percent rise over year-ago sales of $80.5 million.
