And, we improved our operating profitability, as we maintained strong gross margins and delivered SG&A efficiencies.”

While we are encouraged by the progress being made and resulting improvement in our bottom line performance, we still have work to do on the top line. My primary focus in my new role, in collaboration with our leadership team, is to drive consistent sales and profit growth, all with our continued commitment to The Container Store’s principled way of doing business.”
