PIER 1 IMPORTS : posts quarterly loss

06/19/2008 | 06:18am US/Eastern

Home furnishings retailer Pier 1 Imports reported a quarterly loss on Thursday as store closures and lower traffic in March and April hurt sales.

The loss came to $32.8 million, or 37 cents a share, for the first quarter ended on May 31, compared with a year-earlier loss of $56.4 million, or 64 cents a share.

Pier 1 offered to buy fellow furnishings retailer Cost Plus Inc <CPWM.O> for about $88.4 million in stock earlier this month, but the operator of Cost Plus World Markets rejected the bid this week, saying it was not attractive financially or strategically.
