Rick Brooks, Chief Executive Officer of Zumiez Inc., stated, "We were very pleased with the top-line growth we generated during the second quarter and improved earnings results relative to last year, driven by comparable stores sales that were at the high-end of our guidance range.

The merchandise and pricing initiatives we have implemented continue to resonate with consumers and are fueling gains across our business, including stronger than expected product margins. We are encouraged by our improved trends year-to-date, and optimistic that we have the right strategies in place to build on our positive momentum as we begin the important second half of the year."

2010 Outlook
The Company is introducing guidance for the three months ending October 30, 2010 of net income per diluted share of approximately $0.21 to $0.24. This guidance is based on an anticipated comparable store sales increase in the mid single digit range for the third quarter of fiscal 2010.

We currently intend to open 27 new stores in fiscal 2010 with an opening cadence similar to fiscal 2009.
