After a cool spring, we have taken appropriate markdowns and customers are responding favorably.” The company, which says it is intensifying second-half marketing spending as a result of the softer sales, adds that it is encouraged by its early take on back-to-school sales as well as stronger spending in women’s ready-to-wear category.
