Comments on the Third Quarter and Nine Months
Stephen I. Sadove, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, noted, "I am pleased with our third quarter operating performance. The year-over-year improvement was primarily driven by our continued comparable store sales growth and gross margin expansion.

"Our 5.7% third quarter comparable store sales increase was consistent with our expectations, and was achieved even as we continued to strategically reduce our promotional activity." The Company's comparable store sales grew 5.5% for the nine months.

In the Saks Fifth Avenue stores, several merchandise categories showed strength during the quarter, including shoes, women's apparel, dresses, men's sportswear, and fashion jewelry. The New York City flagship store sales performance was in line with the Company's aggregate comparable store sales performance during the quarter.
