"Our second quarter performance primarily reflected the continued impact of the difficult macro backdrop that has impacted big ticket discretionary purchases as well as the demand for home remodeling projects. We also continued to experience pressure from low brand awareness as we continue on our transition to LL Flooring. We are actively pursuing operational opportunities to improve our performance including broadening and growing our brand awareness among consumers to drive traffic; ensuring a consistent customer experience across our omnichannel network to improve conversion; and improving operating efficiencies by intently working to reduce costs while focusing investments on our top growth priorities," said president and chief executive officer Charles Tyson.
