MINNEAPOLIS-Women’s apparel retailer Christopher & Banks posted a December same-store sales drop of 7% year over year. Total sales at the chain also dropped, to $60 million from $60.2 million during December last year.

Management had expected a 6% to 7% decline in same-store sales in December, it said in last week’s third-quarter earnings release. Customer response to the retailer’s product assortment was less than favorable during the period, says the company.

Same-store sales during the last 10 months have risen by 3% year over year. During that period total sales have jumped 12%, to $473.3 million. During its most recent quarter, which ended Nov. 25, same-store sales were down 1%.

Christopher & Banks ended the fiscal month with 779 stores, compared with 707 at the end of December last year. It operates 524 Christopher & Banks stores, 218 C.J. Banks units and 37 Acorn locations.
