I think their stores look amateurish. Like a boutique that will probably be out of business next year, not like a national brand.

Nothing spectacular about this retailer except healthy gross margins. Same store sales have been declining, but could recover. They keyword is they could. I recall from presentations that the management is quite experienced and had success at other chains before they decided to try to start a new business. There is no moat. Only can do well if management executes well.

You will either see $6 or $40 in 5 years. I hope it is $40. Management claimed that their stores cost less, and are very profitable. I hope they can manage $1.75 to $2 per share in EPS in 5 years. That could stretch the valuation to $40 at some point between today and 5 years from today.

The company has a growth plan that can and will be executed.

My wife and daughter actually buy stuff from these people.

The boutique store model works.

FRAN is currently caught in a market downdraft.

Take advantage of it.
