  • We may be unable to compete favorably in the highly competitive retail industry, and if we lose customers to our competitors, our sales could decrease.
  • Most of our merchandise is produced by foreign manufacturers; therefore, the availability, quality and costs of our merchandise may be negatively affected by risks associated with international trade and other international conditions.
  • Failure to successfully integrate any businesses that we acquire could have an adverse impact on our results of operations and financial performance.
  • Our sales and inventory levels fluctuate on a seasonal basis. Accordingly, our quarterly results of operations are volatile and may fluctuate significantly.

Management Discussion
  • MD&A is provided as a supplement to, and should be read in conjunction with, our consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this document.  This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.  Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including those discussed in “Item 1A Risk Factors.”  See the cautionary note regarding forward-looking statements set forth at the beginning of Part I of the Annual Report on Form 10-K.
  • Fiscal 2021 was marked by record sales and earnings for the Company including net sales growth of 19.5% and growth in diluted earnings per share of 61.7% to $4.85. This was up from our previous diluted earnings per share record in the prior year of $3.00.  Our stores were open for approximately 97.0% of the possible operating days in fiscal 2021, while due to COVID-19 related store closures in fiscal 2020, our stores were open for approximately 78.4% of the possible operating days in the prior year.  The majority of the improvement in open store days was related to the United States, while we experienced continued impacts of store closures in Europe, Canada and Australia.  We also benefitted from domestic government stimulus early in fiscal 2021 resulting in sales growth of 102.6% for first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with the prior year.  Throughout the remainder of the year we drove quarterly year-over-year sales growth in the mid to high single digits resulting in the highest sales in Company history and growth of 14.5% over pre-pandemic fiscal 2019 sales.
  • Fiscal 2021 represented our sixth straight year of product margin gains.  Product margins grew by 110 basis points in 2021 as our teams remained focused on providing our customers with a diverse product offering and continued newness.  While the year was full of challenges associated with labor shortages, closures, inflation and supply chain, we were able to manage through the issues growing sales and product margin in each quarter of the year.  Overall gross margin was also positively impacted by 140 basis points of leverage in our occupancy costs with significant sales growth, as well as a reduction in web fulfillment and web shipping to customers of 100 basis points as sales shifted back to physical stores with fewer closures overall during the year and a resurgence of our customers coming back to malls represented by a store penetration level that was closer to 2019 than 2020. Total gross margin improved 330 basis points from the prior year to 38.6% of sales.
