Stage Stores, Inc., is a Houston, Texas-based retailer formed in 1988. The Company operates both department stores and off-price stores. Its department stores, which operate under the Bealls, Goody's, Palais Royal, Peebles and Stage nameplates, offer moderately priced, nationally recognized brand name and private label apparel, accessories, cosmetics and footwear for the entire family. Its off-price stores, which are called Steele's, offer brand name family apparel, accessories, shoes and home décor at significant savings to department store prices. As of February 2, 2013, the Company operated approximately 864 stores located in 40 states. The Company also offers its merchandise direct-to-consumer through its eCommerce website and Send program. The eCommerce website features similar merchandise categories to those found in the Company's stores as well as a broader assortment of home and gift merchandise, fashion apparel, accessories, shoes, cosmetics, fragrances and electronics. 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. It faces competition from local retailers, small regional chains and to a lesser extent, national department stores. The Company is subject to various federal, state and local government laws and regulations including, but not limited to, tax laws.
