John Swygert, president and CEO of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, said this about the OLLI stock earnings report:
“The fourth quarter proved to be a more challenging sales period than we had anticipated. Our significant investment in toys impacted the performance of other important merchandise categories. Had we been more balanced in our merchandise assortment, and had a longer holiday season, we believe we would have delivered sales more in line with our expectations.”
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet doesn’t include guidance for fiscal 2020. Like with many other companies, the reason behind this is the coronavirus from China that is disrupting the U.S. economy.
OLLI stock was down 2.79% after markets closed Thursday.
