Business Description

Industry: Retail - Apparel & Specialty » Apparel Stores
Compare:IDEXY, ARO, TJX, FRCOF, ROST » details
Stage Stores, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of Delaware on June 17, 1993. The Company is a Houston, Texas-based specialty department store retailer, which operates under the Bealls, Goody's, Palais Royal, Peebles and Stage nameplates. It offers moderately priced, nationally recognized brand name and private label apparel, accessories, cosmetics and footwear for the entire family. As of February 1, 2014 the Company also operated an off-price concept under the Steele's nameplate, that was sold on March 7, 2014. The Company's principal focus is on consumers in small and mid-sized markets which the Company believes are under-served and less competitive. It differentiates itself from the competition in the small and mid-sized communities that it serves by offering consumers access to brand name merchandise not typically carried by other retailers in the same market area. The Company also offers its merchandise direct-to-consumer through its eCommerce website and Send program. The eCommerce website features similar, but broader, assortments of merchandise as that found in the Company's stores, as well as other products not carried in its stores. The Send program allows customers to have merchandise shipped directly to their homes from another store if their size or color is not available in a local store. In addition to the Bealls, Goody's, Palais Royal, Peebles, Stage and Steele's trademarks, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the "USPTO") has issued federal registrations to the Company for the following trademarks: Baxter & Wells, Cape Classic, Choose To Be You, Goody's 4 Shoes, Goody's Family Clothing, Goody's Family Clothing (and design), goodysonline.com, Graphite, Hannah, Hannah Comfort, H.O.M.E.
