Including licensed locations, there were 388 Michael Kors stores worldwide at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Mr. Idol continued, “Our exceptional third quarter results were driven by continued strength across our business segments and geographies. In North America, comparable store sales increased 41% due to the growing demand for Michael Kors merchandise, which we attribute to our compelling luxury product assortment and exceptional jet-set in-store experience. The 75% sales increase in the North America wholesale segment reflects comparable stores sales growth as well as the continued conversion to shop-in-shops in department stores. In Europe, the 58% comparable store sales growth, which reflected continued brand acceptance, combined with the expansion of our retail and wholesale doors, led to 112% sales growth in the quarter. Finally, in our licensing segment, revenue increased 52%, driven primarily by the ongoing strength in watches. Overall, we believe that the Michael Kors brand is ideally positioned within the global luxury lifestyle market and we look forward to delivering on our long-term objectives.”
