"We generated an impressive 6.5% increase in comparable store sales, which exceeded the top end of our quarterly guidance range of 4% to 6%. 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. Our relentless focus on expense control, along with our strong gross margin results, generated a record quarterly operating margin of 17.3%, which was a 170 basis point improvement over the prior year. 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%. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of our 60,000 Team Members for their hard work and commitment to O'Reilly's continued success."
