Retail chain One Price Clothing Stores Inc has announced the appointment of John Disa as its new chief executive officer.

Disa is the former COO of Lady/Kids Foot Locker, senior vice-president of merchandise planning at Foot Locker Inc, and senior vice-president, CFO and division president of Casual Corner Group Inc.

Board of directors spokesman T. Scott King, vice-president of One Price's largest shareholder Sun-One Price, said the company was "delighted" to have Disa on board.

"With the recent investment of an additional $5 million by Sun-One Price and various cost-cutting initiatives already in place, we believe the addition of John's leadership to the team puts the company in solid position for future success," he said.

The South Carolina-based company currently operates 552 stores across the US, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
