Our unwavering commitment to providing consistent, excellent customer service drove outstanding sales results across all of our markets. We achieved a record quarterly gross margin of 50.8%, primarily driven by improvements in acquisition costs, product mix and pricing management.

We continue to believe in the strength of the long-term demand drivers in our industry, and we are establishing our third quarter comparable store sales guidance at 4% to 6% and reiterating our full-year comparable store sales guidance of 3% to 5%.
