Hat World Corp., a business unit of Genesco Inc., is reporting strong web sales for 2005.

In 2005, Hat World, No. 290 in the Internet Retailer Top 400 Guide to Retail Web Sites, recorded e-commerce sales of $13.24 million, an increase of 28.8% from web sales of $10.28 million in 2004. Overall total sales grew 37.4% to $297.2 million in 2005 from $216.2 million in 2004.

Hat World, which operates Lids.com and two other e-commerce sites, is boosting web sales while at the same time consolidating operations.

In 2005, the web represented about 4% of total sales compared with 3% in 2004.
