Clothing retailer Christopher & Banks Corp on Thursday said it has increased its revolving credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank Minnesota NA to $40 million from $25m, subject to inventory levels.

The Minneapolis-based company has negotiated a two year extension to the credit facility with a new maturity date of June 30, 2006, with the facility available for seasonal working capital needs and other general corporate purposes.

Chairman and CEO, Bill Prange, said: "The increase in our credit facility, along with our strong cash balance, will continue to provide us with significant financial flexibility as our business continues to grow."
