major product categories and geographic regions while generating strong
merchandise margin expansion. Sales momentum in our retail stores
continued as we have now reported 7 consecutive quarters of same store
sales growth in our stores. We also delivered double-digit growth in
e-commerce sales with a healthy increase in margin. The team executed
extremely well from a merchandising, marketing and operational
perspective, driving strong top line and bottom line growth. While
early, I am also quite pleased with current business and a solid start
to our fiscal fourth quarter."
