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."
