Off-price retailer Factory 2-U Stores Inc on Wednesday reported a 2.4 per cent slip in September same-store sales.

The company said total sales in the five weeks to October 6 fell 5.1 per cent to $44 million from $46.4m in the year-ago period amid a weak retail environment.

It added its outlets in Houston, Dallas, New Mexico and Los Angeles performed the poorest with negative mid single-digit comparable store sales.
