genesco chairman, president and chief executive officer hal n. pennington, said, "our results for the quarter, which significantly exceeded plan, were fueled by better than expected performances at journeys, hat world, underground station and johnston & murphy.

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.
