sales, margins, and cash flow were strong, and we ended the quarter with a good inventory position. we look forward to building on our momentum in the marketplace.

"journeys' same store sales increased 7%, footwear unit comparable sales rose 11%, and gross margins came in above plan. journeys generated meaningful leverage on the strong sales as operating margin improved 270 basis points to 10.7%. our stores are focused and our merchandise selection is reflective of what is currently happening in the marketplace, helping us sustain the favorable same store sales trend.
