Teen apparel retailer ARO lost nearly 65% of the holistic valuation in the last year, owing to dismal financial performances. The buyers completely lost faith and interest upon the brand; as a consequence, the retailer failed to put up competent and positive comparable growth in sales, over the last three years.

However, the downfall continued alarmingly, and the company lost over $70 million, last year.

Fierce competition persists amongst top notch brands like Zaram H&M and Forever 21. Low brand royalty and extreme weather conditions till February, accounted for a brisk decline on ARO’s comparable sales in the last quarter. Though ARO might notch up new customer responses to its set of new collections, yet this is merely a trifle in comparison to the loss of revenues that ARO is already reeling down under!

ARO expect weak inventory and traffic clearance and macro-economic headwinds in the last quarter. To counter the negativities, the company has already taken up suave measures like retail downsizing, expense management and effective merchandising. With the multi-fold development agendas at hand, Aeropostale Inc (NYSE:ARO) seeks to turn the tables and bag sumptuous profits, this time round, yielding improved results.

On May 12, 2014, financially challenged ARO announced that its Glendale’s Bayshore Town Center would stay closed from the business end, on that day. This closure shall leave ARO with two stores in Milwaukee, at Brookfield Square and Southridge.
