So what does it mean?

  • Lovesac’s low growth online did not compensate for an in-store sales dip, so the company is looking ahead, positioning itself for a furniture-category rebound.
  • Rent the Runway’s revenue was flat year over year in its fourth quarter, as it recorded a smaller loss for its 2023 fiscal year than it did for 2022.
