July retail sales at Guess? Inc rose 1.3 per cent to $34.5 million from $34 million a year earlier the company said Wednesday, adding that comparable store sales fell 4.3 per cent in the same period. This was in line with the company's earlier guidance for a low- to mid-single-digit decline.

Same-store sales at the company's full-priced retail stores decreased 2.1 per cent, while same-store sales at the factory outlet stores fell 8.6 per cent.

Last week Guess? Inc, which designs, markets, distributes and licenses contemporary apparel and accessories, said it expects second-half revenues to fall about 5 per cent year-over-year.
