Phoenix Footwear saw its sales decline by 1.0 percent to $5.77 million in the third quarter ended Oct. 1, bringing the accumulated decline in the first nine months of the year to 6.3 percent. The decrease during the quarter was primarily attributed to lower sales in the catalog, online and national retail channels, which were partly offset by increases in the company's e-commerce and other internet-based accounts. The Carlsbad, California-based company reported a break-even result from continuing operations for the quarter as compared to a net operating loss from continuing operations of $45,000 in the same period in 2015. For the first nine months of fiscal 2016, the company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $737,000, which compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $735,000 in the first nine months of the previous year.
