  • champ: $GOOS @ $41.75 ....been adding, next target is $42, then $45, then $50, is the hope. Following the $COST and $LULU news, international sales and comps were way-up, see what $LULU said about their China sales, they were up 68%. $COST, had to shut down on Day-1 in China, because they had too many customers in the store. $GOOS, opened up 2-new stores in China, last year but the real diver is their On-Line sales, in China, and 40 other and holiday sales, are on the way.
