Year to date sales are up 8% to $42.6 million in the current year compared to $39.4 million last year.

Retail Leathercraft's sales rose 14% to $2.5 million compared to September 2009 sales of $2.2 million. The 75 comparable stores' sales were up 13% for the month compared to the same period last year. The one store opened since September 2009 added September sales of $18,000. Year-to-date sales for Retail Leathercraft are $22.6 million this year, a 15% increase over sales of $19.7 million for the same period of 2009. For the year, the 74 comparable stores' sales were up 13% compared to sales reported for the same period in 2009. 

Wholesale Leathercraft posted sales of $2.1 million for September, up 1% from September 2009 sales of $2.0 million. Within the Wholesale Leathercraft division, the wholesale stores' sales were up 2% for the month while the National Account group's sales were down 3% compared to September 2009. For the year to date, Wholesale Leathercraft sales are $18.8 million compared to $18.3 million in 2009, up 3%. As of the end of September, the wholesale stores' sales were up 5% compared to the same period last year while the National Account group's sales are down 7%.

Chief Executive Officer and President Jon Thompson commented, "September makes our fifteenth month of consecutive sales gains – a great trend. Our Retail Leathercraft division has reported sales gains for twenty-two consecutive months and our International Leathercraft division has reported sales gains every month since we opened the UK store in February 2008. Wholesale Leathercraft has been a little less predictable – although it has reported sales gains in nine of the last twelve months. While trends are certainly not guarantees of things to come, I am pleased with our sales performance."
