Clarence H. Smith, president and chief executive officer, said, “The second quarter is historically our weakest of the year. Our advertising focus on great merchandise values and our ability to timely deliver customer purchases continued to bolster sales and separates us from the competition. Consumers remain cautious and we expect their spending will mirror the uneven pace of the economic recovery and our sales will reflect that volatility.”
