NEW YORK — Economic and retail weaknesses weren’t sufficient to slow down Liz Claiborne Inc., which posted a 15 percent increase in third-quarter earnings Thursday.
For the three months ended Sept. 28, the apparel giant reported net income of $83.5 million, or 78 cents a diluted share, compared with $72.6 million, or 69 cents, in the year-ago period. Sales rose 3.3 percent to $1.04 billion from $1.01 billion.
