Darrell Webb, chairman and chief executive officer stated, "Jo-Ann Stores achieved another quarter of strong performance to end a year of significant growth in fiscal 2011. Our record fourth quarter was driven by solid execution among our entire organization, which helped drive customers to our stores and delivered improved results despite the impact of unfavorable weather and raw material cost inflation.

“The new stores we opened in fiscal 2011 have been the strongest group of store openings relative to our sales projections since implementing our current store prototype. This performance continues to validate our long-term strategy for accelerating our store opening and remodeling activities for 2012 and beyond. We continue to believe that there are substantial opportunities to increase Jo-Ann Stores' sales, market share, and profitability as we execute on our growth plans over the coming years."
