William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our team produced solid revenue growth in the quarter despite the challenge of generally poor weather that impacted industry trends. This growth was driven by our team’s focus and commitment to providing our customers with the right products and experiences along with strength in key geographic markets, such as Florida and parts of the Northeast. During the quarter, our efforts resulted in product gross margin expansion, which was attributable to the ongoing industry recovery, continued improved inventory aging, and our team’s passion and focus on our brands and strategies. In our efforts to stimulate additional sales because of challenging weather, we invested in enhanced promotional activities, which combined with rising insurance costs, resulted in higher ongoing expenses.”
