Recession or not, The Warnaco Group Inc. is putting its Calvin Klein jeans and underwear retail businesses on the offensive.
The company, which has a long-standing licensing arrangement with Calvin Klein, said its first-quarter results, which included net income that more than doubled, were strong enough to warrant adding 120,000 square feet in stores and shop-in-shops this year. That’s an increase from the 100,000 previously planned, but a slowdown from 2008 when the company added 140,000 square feet and ended the year with 500,000 square feet in international retail space.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
