Third Quarter Highlights
Nine Month Highlights
"Our total sales increase of 9% for the third quarter of 2012 was attributable to nine stores that we opened throughout the first nine months of the year, expanding our store base by 12%. We entered 4 new markets: Salt Lake City and Ogden, UT; Boise, ID; and Indianapolis, IN, as well as opened additional stores in Minneapolis and Denver," commented Jeff Gordman, President and Chief Executive Officer.
"While our third quarter comparable store sales were slightly lower than last year, we were encouraged by the mid-single digit increase in our average sale for this timeframe and the growth in our women's and children's apparel areas. Moreover, we have a number of new initiatives in place to drive our operating performance going forward."
