The broader La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries® network posted increases in first-quarter written same-store sales on a one-, two-, and three-year basis. In addition, our wholesale Upholstery segment turned in a GAAP operating margin of 9.0%, even with sales challenged for our England subsidiary and international businesses."

  • Written same-store sales increased 4.7%
  • Same-store sales for company-owned retail segment increased 3.5%

La-Z-Boy's stock closed Tuesday's session at $30.64 per share.
