"It's sad to say" that one of the reasons the parent company has not been able to make a quicker turnaround than it would like is because of outdated systems, which limited the chain's ability to retrieve information, said John Rossler, president and ceo of parent company Retail Ventures, during a third quarter conference call this week.
