St. Louis -- Build-A-Bear Workshop said Thursday that it recorded net income of $8.3 million in the fiscal fourth quarter, compared with a loss of $0.9 million in the year-ago period.
Total sales for the period rose 2.2% to $125.8 million, from $123.1 million a year earlier. Same-store sales companywide dipped 3.7%.
For the full year, total revenues rose 1.4% to $401.5 million.
“While our fourth quarter 3.7% decline in comparable store sales was disappointing, for the year, we stabilized our sales trends, increased our average transaction and improved our margins and we believe that our strategies remain on track to move us forward," said Maxine Clark, chairman and chief executive bear.
