For the four weeks ended July 24, 2016, comparable warehouse sales for the 36 warehouse clubs open at least 13 1/2 full months were equal to the same four-week period last year. For the forty-seven week period ended July 24, 2016, comparable warehouse sales decreased 0.8 %, compared to the comparable forty-seven week period a year ago.
