Store Operating Performance

The third quarter of the year is characterized by the August switch in collections with the introduction of the tendencies and items traditional to spring-summer season fashions. The period between July and September 2010 saw a good sales performance set against the background of a favorable consumer environment driven by several macroeconomic variables such as robust levels of consumer confidence, lower unemployment and the increased number of formal job opportunities in the economy. As a result, Net Revenue from Merchandise Sales was up 16.8% in 3Q10 and 16.7% in 9M10. Same Store Sales in turn reported an increase of +10.5% both in 3Q10 and the period between January and September.

The Company's business continued to report improvements, all of them in line with the operational initiatives adopted over the past few years in the supply chain, adjustments in the quantities of domestically-made items vis a vis imports, improvements in stock composition and procurement planning as well as an upgrading in the processes for developing the collections and a better understanding of the particularities of each of the country's regions. These initiatives have fed through to gains in Gross Margin, rising from 46.0% in 3Q09 to 47.3% in 3Q10 and from 46.8% in the 9M09 period to 49.5% in the first nine months of the year.
