Women's fashion chain Cache Inc on Wednesday posted an eight per cent climb in October same-store sales and added total sales for the month surged 11 per cent to $14.4 million from $13m last year.

The New York-based operator of 231 stores said total sales for the 43-week period ended October 26, rose 10 per cent to $155.3m from $14.6m with same-store sales for the period up seven per cent.
