May '08
Jo-Ann Stores Inc announced financial results for its fiscal 2009 first quarter ended May 3, 2008. Net earnings for the quarter were $3.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.07 loss per share in fiscal 2008.

Net sales for the first quarter increased 5.2% to $446.1 million from $424.2 million in the prior year. Same-store sales increased 4.5% compared with a 1.8% increase for the same period last year.

Large-format stores net sales for the quarter increased 5.0% to $230.2 million from $219.3 million last year. Same-store sales for large-format stores increased 3.3%, compared with an increase of 3.0% for the same period last year. Small-format stores net sales for the quarter increased 1.4% to $207.7 million from $204.9 million last year. Same-store sales performance for small-format stores increased 5.8% compared with an increase of 0.8% for the same period last year.

"I am very pleased with our first quarter results and encouraged to see so many initiatives from our Strategic Plan driving the improved performance. This was our fifth consecutive quarter of same-store sales improvement and seventh consecutive quarter of increasing earnings per share.

The current economic environment remains uncertain, but we will continue to focus on executing our strategic initiatives and enhancing our competitive position to deliver balanced and consistent performance throughout fiscal 2009 and beyond," said Darrell Webb, chairman, president and chief executive officer.
