NEW YORK — The Elder-Beerman Stores Corp.’s fourth-quarter profits withered under the dual pressures of soft sales and higher expenses.
For the three months ended Feb. 1, the Dayton, Ohio-based operator of 68 department stores in eight states said net income declined 14.5 percent to $8.3 million, or 72 cents a diluted share, versus prior-year earnings of $9.7 million, or 84 cents. The most recent results included a pre-tax charge of $3.6 million from losses incurred from the termination of a company-defined benefits program.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
