“We are off to a solid start for the year with increased comparable store sales, growth in e-commerce and international franchise revenues and a considerable improvement in our operating performance for the quarter,” stated Maxine Clark, Build-A-Bear Workshop Chief Executive Bear. “Our performance reflects strength in our gift giving initiatives and the benefit of strong Easter product and promotions particularly in North America where our comp store sales increased 3.6% while our European business was impacted by a challenging economic environment. Through the end of April, which captures the impact in the change of Easter, our comp sales are essentially flat, with an increase in North America and a significant improvement in our UK trend. As we move forward, we remain confident in the strategies that we set for the year and fully expect to deliver solid sales growth and profitability in 2012,” Ms. Clark concluded.
