Total sales increased by $974,000 or 1.4% to $72.1 million from $71.1 million last year.

The Company recently announced the acquisition of eight new locations from the former SAAN stores and an additional location in Amos, Québec, with all nine new locations opening this Fall in time for the Holiday shopping season.

In commenting on the results and its current expansion plans, Mr. Michael Hart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hart Stores said: "The Company realizes that the same store sales remained a challenge during an unseasonably cool summer.

We continue to see the positive impact from our strategic expansion plans and are pleased with the recent acquisition of the nine new locations.

They will provide a great synergy and further complement the critical mass in many of the new and existing tertiary markets in which we have established a solid performance."
