The Cosmetic Center Inc., a Savage-based discount retailer of beauty products and perfume, reported healthy gains in earnings and sales during a quarter when many retailers were staggered by the recession.

The company reported a 12.6 percent gain in earnings for its first fiscal quarter, which ended Dec. 27, with a strong 11 percent gain over 1990 in sales at stores that had been open at least a year. Total sales rose 16.9 percent as the company expanded to 37 stores in the Baltimore-Washington area, Chicago and Richmond, Va. The company said it has signed leases to open three more stores by summer, in Ellicott City, Chevy Chase and Chantilly, Va.
