Video game hardware, software and PC entertainment software and accessories retailer Electronics Boutique has revised downward its fourth quarter earnings guidance.
The new estimate is the result of a projected fourth quarter comp-store sales decrease ranging from 5 percent to 9 percent, down from the previously expected comp-store sales increase of 8 percent to 12 percent. The company blamed the decrease primarily on the general economic climate, compounded by the impact of the shorter holiday shopping season.
