Management Discussion
  • Net sales for the first quarter of 2019 decreased to $319.0 million from $336.4 million in 2018, a year-over-year decrease of $17.4 million or 5.2%. On a comparable store basis, sales decreased 8.5% from the same period last year.
  • General merchandise (non-pharmacy) sales for the first quarter of 2019 decreased 7.8% to $214.3 million from $232.4 million in 2018. This was driven by a decrease in Consumables sales, which decreased by 16.3% from the same period last year primarily driven by the reduction in store traffic impacted by the continued out-of-stock position in certain inventory categories.
  • Pharmacy department sales were 32.8% of total sales in the first quarter of 2019 compared to 30.9% of total sales in the comparable period of the prior year. The total sales for the first quarter of 2019 in this department increased 0.7% from the first quarter of 2018.
