Tandy Leather Factory Inc. of Fort Worth has reported July sales of $6.2 million, down 5 percent compared to $6.5 million in the same month last year.
“The decrease in July sales is due to one less selling day compared to last July and continued weakness in sales overall,” said CEO Shannon L. Greene, commenting in a news release.
“The international stores really struggled in July, which we will continue to monitor. Despite the soft sales, we are still on track with our annual revenue forecast,” Greene said.
The company’s Retail Leathercraft division saw sales drop 4 percent to $4 million compared to $4.2 million in the same month last year.
Meanwhile, sales for Wholesale Leathercraft dropped to $1.9 million for July 2016, down 7 percent compared to $2 million in the same month last year.
Sales for the company’s International Leathercraft division dropped 15 percent, from $313,000 in July 2015 to $267,000 in the same month this year.
