Frederick's Of Hollywood Announces August 2012 Comparable Store Sales

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Frederick's of Hollywood Group Inc. (NYSE MKT: FOH) ("Company") announced today that its comparable store sales for the four weeks ended August 25, 2012 decreased 15.2% compared to the four weeks ended August 27, 2011.

"As we continue to implement our new sales and marketing approach, which focuses less on promotional and discount sales, we are optimizing inventory levels and increasing gross margins.  We continue to work towards achieving more profitable sales with an effective balance among inventory, promotional sales, gross margins and overhead costs.  Although we have experienced a decline in sales, this is a long-term strategy that we believe will improve our financial performance, strengthen our brand and build shareholder value," stated Thomas Lynch, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
