    • Hi Science, very nice article. To be fair, I believe the company is moving in the right direction on several fronts:

      1) Comparable store sales are increasing at decent rates

      2) Online sales are picking up the pace. If they continue to do so, their infrastructure could help them reach a decent share of total online sales.

      3) The salary increases are non-recurring and I believe it will have a positive impact in the consumer experience.

      4) They are suffering from translation effects which are outside their control.

      To me, the core business is getting interesting headwinds and seems to be on the right path. I believe that by reducing their financial expenses (and leverage) they are close to be one of the remaining bargains in the market.

      All the best,
