The company reported net income of $16.7 million, down from net income of
$23.6 million in the year-ago period.
Results for the third quarter include the unfavorable impact of
hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Chico’s said the hurricanes
resulted in reduced operating hours or the temporary closure of more
than 300 stores, as well as a decline in direct-to-customer sales.. . . .more
