Perfumania Holdings, Inc. Reports Perfumania Retail Sales For November 2010

BELLPORT, N.Y., Dec. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfumania Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PERF) announced today that Perfumania, one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries which operates specialty retail fragrance stores throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, reported total net sales of $23.5 million for the four week fiscal month of November 2010 which ended November 27, 2010 versus $26.7 million for the four week fiscal month of November 2009 which ended November 28, 2009. On a year-to-date basis, total net sales were $188.3 million in the current year compared with $187.3 million last year. For the month of November 2010, comparable store sales decreased by 10.4%.  The impact on the Company's performance from the decrease in comparable store sales for the month of November 2010 was substantially offset by an improved gross margin achieved in November 2010. Comparable store sales on a year-to-date basis increased by 0.8%.  Comparable store sales measure sales from stores that have been open for one year or more. We exclude stores that are closed for renovation from comparable store sales from the month during which renovation commences until the first full month after reopening.
