    BENSALEM, Pa., Aug 17, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Charming Shoppes, Inc. (CHRS, Trade) a leading multi-channel specialty apparel retailer specializing in women's plus-size apparel, today reported record sales and earnings for the second quarter ended July 30, 2005. The Company's reported results for the three and six month periods ended July 30, 2005 include sales and earnings from Crosstown Traders, Inc. since its acquisition on June 2, 2005.

    Three Months Ended July 30, 2005

    For the three months ended July 30, 2005, net income increased 46% to a record $39,577,000 or $0.30 per diluted share. For the corresponding period ended July 31, 2004, net income was $27,059,000 or $0.21 per diluted share. The strong increase in net income is directly attributable to solid improvements in the operating margin, driven by expansion in the gross margin at each of the Company's retail store brands. There was no impact to second quarter earnings from the Company's Crosstown Traders business, which was acquired June 2, 2005. Net sales for the three months ended July 30, 2005 increased 13% to a record $688,360,000, compared to sales of $611,737,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2004. Exclusive of the sales from Crosstown Traders, Charming Shoppes achieved record net sales for the quarter from its consolidated retail store brands, which increased 4% during the second quarter. Consolidated comparable store sales for the Company's retail store brands increased 3% during the three months ended July 30, 2005.

    Six Months Ended July 30, 2005

    For the six months ended July 30, 2005, net income increased 31% to a record $69,594,000 or $0.53 per diluted share. For the corresponding period ended July 31, 2004, net income was $53,308,000 or $0.42 per diluted share. Net sales for the six months ended July 30, 2005 increased 7% to $1,291,615,000, compared to sales of $1,204,475,000 for the six months ended July 31, 2004. Consolidated comparable store sales for the Company's retail store brands increased 1% for the six months ended July 30, 2005.

    Commenting on earnings, Dorrit J. Bern, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Charming Shoppes, Inc., said, "We are pleased to report record earnings for both our second quarter and first half. Our results for the second quarter include solid improvement in our operating income for each of our retail store brands. At Lane Bryant, Catherines Plus Sizes and Fashion Bug, the strong sell-through of seasonal merchandise during the quarter resulted in a significant improvement in the gross margin for the consolidated corporation."

    For the fiscal year ending January 28, 2006, the Company has provided an updated projection for diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.73 -- $0.75, compared to $0.52 per diluted share for the corresponding period ended January 29, 2005.
