ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Pacific Sunwear said Thursday that its business struggled in December, and it gave a disappointing outlook for the fiscal fourth quarter. Shares slid in aftermarket trading. The retailer said holiday sales got off to a strong start in November, but over the first three weeks of December fewer people came to its stores and sales of denim products were below its expectations.

That's down from $228 million a year ago. FactSet says analysts expect a loss of 14 cents per share and $219.7 million in revenue. Shares of Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. rose 6 cents to close at $3.43 on Thursday, and lost 27 cents , or 7.9 percent, to $3.16 in extended trading.
