Sal Perisano, iParty’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Historically our third quarter is a loss quarter as we prepare for the Halloween and holiday seasons. We are however pleased with the trends for the quarter which reflect an overall improvement in our business. Our sales, margins and operating expenses were all well within our expectations and our year to date net loss through the third quarter improved by approximately $1 million compared to last year. With our two new store fronts and what we believe to be a strong group of temporary Halloween stores, we have 64 storefronts open this Halloween, leaving us very well positioned entering into the all important Halloween season and fourth quarter."
