Build-A-Bear quarterly earnings fall short of expectations

Overland-based stuffed animal and toy retailer Build-A-Bear reported net income of $1.1 million, or 6 cents per share, in the third quarter, marking a decrease of 4 cents from the same period last year.

The shop’s same-store sales improved, but its profit and revenue did not meet expectations. Build-A-Bear’s quarterly revenue fell 1.2 percent, to $85.6 million, which is $3.6 million less than what analysts anticipated.

Build-A-Bear, which has 400 stores worldwide, will continue to focus on licensed products. It will repeat a 2013 partnership it had with McDonald’s. The store’s “Frozen” products were popular in 2014, and it will add a Snoopy character this fall to coincide with the new “Peanuts” movie’s release.
