SHERMAN OAKS, CA-Retailer Shoe Pavilion is expecting a third-quarter loss in the range of $100,000 to $300,000 for the period ended Oct. 1. The quarter was impacted by lower-than-expected sales and costs related to new store openings, executives say.

Net sales did increase by 28.1%, to $31.8 million. The company has not yet reported its same-store sales, though last year’s identical quarter’s year-over-year comparable gain came in a 3.7%.

During the quarter, Shoe Pavilion opened seven new stores and management expects the opening of 20 to 22 new units during the year. The locally based chain currently operates 101 stores on the West Coast and in the Southwest.

One state that the company is looking to ramp up in is Texas. With currently three stores in the northern part of the state, the company is targeting 10 more there and is in various stages of lease negotiations.

Shoe Pavilion stores offer off-price designer shoes. The company has recently increased its average store size from 18,000 sf to 20,000 sf.
