LNT rolling in P'tex replacements

Clifton, NJ — During the upcoming quarter, Linens 'n Things' bath shop programs are expected to suffer some "mild disruptions" as the retailer begins the transition to alternate sourcing for lines previously provided by Pillowtex, cfo William Giles said during the company's third quarter conference call.

"We do not, however, expect that this will materially impact our business," Giles added.

Other programs that recently rolled out include the introduction of the Liz Claiborne Home collection, which Giles described as already well received by shoppers, and LNT's new window treatment catalog.

"This new catalog will allow us to reach our guests through a different channel of distribution in a key category," Giles said, "and features an extensive collection of window treatments, window hardware and slipcovers."
