3   The opportunity that we see for Express is to make a collection of casual skirts.   Express already carries a variety of jeans in different cuts for women to wear during the day, and they also offer a line of casual pants, but no casual skirts.   By expanding into this category Express could increase sales for the company and could potentially gain more customers.   If Express branches out into casual skirts they can truly dress their target customers for every occasion.
