  • Buckle posted an increase in same-store sales in both the men’s and women’s segments.
  • Cato’s same-store sales growth rate accelerated from 3% in August to 5% in September. The company stated that its same-store sales continued on a positive trend, but it remains cautiously optimistic as it evaluates the impact of the tariffs implemented this month.
