Commenting on the fourth quarter, Calvin McDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer, Sears Canada Inc., said, "Although sales were lower than last year, our same store sales performance in the fourth quarter improved over the three prior quarters. Home electronics and Craftsman, which includes snowblowers and hardware, contributed to the majority of our sales decline.

“Though the positive sales trend in major appliances slowed, we continued to add market share. Of particular note was the positive same store sales growth of our apparel and accessories business in the quarter compared to the fourth quarter last year. Inventory quality at the end of the quarter improved compared to the same time last year, as a result of a significant reduction in out-of-season inventory."
