Ernie Herrman, Chief Executive Officer and President of The TJX Companies, Inc., stated, “It was terrific to see our strong customer traffic and comps continue in the second quarter. Our consolidated comparable store sales increase of 4%, over 6% growth last year, and our earnings per share increase of 5% both exceeded our expectations. Further, we are extremely pleased that our comp store sales growth was almost entirely driven by customer traffic. We are convinced that we are gaining consumer market share as our excellent values on a compelling selection of brands and fashions are drawing customers to our retail brands around the world. We also are very pleased that our apparel, including accessories, and home businesses both performed well. Further, we saw a strong merchandise margin increase. We believe our robust sales, customer traffic and merchandise margins all speak to the strength of our off-price retail model. With our above-plan second quarter results, we are raising our guidance for full year comp sales to increase 3% to 4% and earnings per share to be in the range of $3.39 to $3.43. The third quarter is off to a solid start, and we see plentiful opportunities for our business in the second half of the year and beyond. We remain laser focused on achieving our goals for 2016 and are passionate about surpassing them. We continue on the road to becoming a $40 billion-plus company!”
