Net sales rose $46.8 million, or 22.2%, to $257.1 million from $210.3 million a year ago.

Comparable store net sales increased 14.9% for the quarter, driven by a 9.1% increase in the number of customers invoiced and a 5.4% increase in the average sale.

“Our success in expanding gross margin allows us to reinvest across our industry-leading value proposition, and we see multi-year opportunities to expand operating margin while we continue to grow our store base,” said CEO Robert Lynch.

The results beat the forecast by analyst Stifel Nicolaus considerably.
