Tandy Leather Factory Inc. of Fort Worth has reported October sales of $6.5 million, down 5 percent compared to $6.9 million in the same month last year.
“Our sales decline this month was partially due to one less selling day this year compared to last year, which we will get back last month,” said CEO Shannon L. Greene, commenting in a news release.
“Even so, the year continues to be a challenging one,” Greene said.
The company’s Retail Leathercraft division saw sales drop 4 percent to $4.2 million compared to $4.4 million in the same month last year.
