Casual Male Retail Group Inc. will unveil a new superstore concept in the spring.
In reporting third-quarter earnings on Thursday, where the company posted a net loss of $1.4 million, or 3 cents a diluted share, the Canton, Mass.-based big and tall men’s wear retailer revealed plans to open three Destination XL stores in 2010. The concept will bring together the merchandise offered by all of the company’s existing divisions: the moderately priced Casual Male, the more-upscale Rochester Big & Tall, the B&T Factory Outlet as well as the catalogues Shoes XL and Living XL. The latter offers products in many categories that address the needs of the larger-size customer such as seat belt expanders, heavy-capacity chairs and step stools.
