Leading men's apparel retailer Jos A Bank Clothiers Inc said on Tuesday its store expansion plan was progressing well and confirmed it would open 23 to 25 new stores by the end of this year. The Maryland-based company, which in April reaffirmed plans to open up to 100 new stores in three years, said in a statement it expects solid second half results and would open at least 30 new retail outlets in 2003.
