Comparable store sales increased 11.8 percent in January 2006.

Mark Lemond, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "A double-digit comparable store sales increase in January provided a fitting close to the best sales and earnings year ever at Shoe Carnival. Our sales increases of 11.7 for the fourth quarter and 6.9 percent for the 2005 fiscal year represent the largest quarterly and annual comparable store sales increases in the company's history.

"We are also pleased that each of our major product categories achieved at least a mid-single digit sales increase for January and the fourth quarter. Additionally, each category recorded a positive sales increase for the year, led by a mid-teens increase in our women's non-athleticcategory."
