The Knoxville, Tenn.-based retailer of moderately priced apparel said Wednesday that income for the three months ended Feb. 1 was $3.9 million, or 12 cents a diluted share, reversing a loss of $7.7 million, or 24 cents, reached in the year-ago quarter.

In addition, the fourth quarter of 2001 included a $1.3 million charge due to corporate restructuring.
