Comments on the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended August 3, 2013

Stephen I. Sadove, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, noted, “While the second quarter was our fourteenth consecutive quarter of posting a comparable store sales increase, our sales growth was modestly below our expectations. This shortfall contributed to our second quarter year-over-year gross margin rate decline and SG&A expense deleverage.”
