Ascena Retail Group Inc reported fiscal 2011 third quarter sales results. Net sales for the fiscal third quarter ended April 30, 2011 increased 9% to $722.8 million, compared to $665.5 million for the fiscal third quarter ended April 24, 2010. The overall increase was primarily due to across-the-board increases in comparable store sales, as well as strong growth in e-commerce sales. Consolidated comparable store sales during the third quarter, for stores open at least one year, increased 6%.

Net sales for the nine month period ended April 30, 2011 increased 32% to $2.19 billion, compared to $1.66 billion for the nine month period ended April 24, 2010. The overall increase was primarily due to strong sales performances at the maurices and Justice brands. On a year-to-date basis, Ascena's consolidated sales also benefited from an extra eighteen weeks of sales volume from Justice that are included in the current year due to the merger in the prior year closing on November 25, 2009. Consolidated comparable store sales during this nine month period increased 6%.
