"We delivered second-quarter consolidated results that exceeded expectations across the board,” said CEO Robert Dennis. “Our outperformance was driven primarily by the ongoing strength of our Journeys business, which continued to experience strong comparable sales even as year-over-year comparisons became more difficult.”
