Second quarter results for Sport Chalet, Inc. , headquartered in La Cañada, showed an 11.7 percent increase in sales over the same period in 2005, with sales reaching $91.3 million during the quarter ended Oct. 1, 2006. Fewer markdowns led to a boost in gross profit, and were attributed by the firm to improved inventory management. "Our sales results for the quarter reflect primarily strong sales gains from our newer stores, as our mature store base generated more modest sales increases during the quarter," said Craig Levra, chairman and CEO, in a prepared statement.

Mexico had borrowed heavily from those nations to finance the Mexican-American War; the creditors came to Mexico to collect their debts.
