    Ms. Bern

    Is Dorrit ever going to get this company back on track or did she use up all she knows at Sears ?

    • It is time for a change at the top. CHRS needs a
      real retail pro who can turn this company around. This
      is a great time for retail and management not get
      the job done. What is going to happen if the economy
      slows down?

    • She doesn't know anything else except how to be a
      good retail soldier. She only able to keep things a
      float, can't lead the troops through the fog, keeps
      getting lost through the smoke and mirrors. True enough
      that she wasn't part of the 60% of management which
      got cut at Sears, but she sure kept her notes of what
      took place there. So she reviewed her notes and tried
      to recreate the same story line. No creativity on
      her part.
      This stock without a significant
      increase in sales will never push through the $4 level. An
      now that we're in the holiday season, sales will stay
      pretty much even. Have you been in a Fashion Bug store
      lately? The quality of the clothes are wear until you
      wash them, then throw in the rag bag for your washing
      of the car.
      You can't compare a chain like Sears
      and FB. She know it and so did Michael.

    • I have confidence that Dorrit will turn around CHRS.She has already taken action.At Sears she did a great job and it surely was a tougher situation than CHRS.

      • My broker says he thinks she is doing a great job---so I am holding and expecting it to go up more if sales continue strong through Christmas--Jan is the end of their year--earning won't be available for the year until Feb---If i remember all this right---he
        said he had this stock when it was $16.00 ---he has so much knowledge and he called me again today to let me know that all his research is positive---have a good weekend------I hope that this makes you all feel better---I am happy and if he has any other news, I will post it right away---Dixie
