“We continued to make progress against our key strategic initiatives in the second quarter and also completed a debt refinancing that extends the maturity of our credit facility while generating approximately $0.07 per share in annualized interest savings,” said Melissa Reiff, Chief Executive Officer. “To Own Custom Closets is our number one strategic priority and we saw continued momentum in our Custom Closets sales in the quarter, along with strong omni-channel growth and effective digital marketing campaigns. However, elements of our merchandise campaign test and learn efforts, mostly around our other product categories, did not resonate with customers as well as we expected, curtailing our comparable store sales and earnings performance for the quarter.”
