Management Discussion
  • Net sales increased 69.5% for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020.
  • Comparable sales is a measure that highlights the performance of our stores and digital channel by measuring the change in sales for a period over the comparable, prior-year period of equivalent length. Comparable sales includes all store and digital sales, except sales from stores open less than 12 months, stores that have been closed, and stores where square footage has changed by more than 10%. We measure the change in digital sales by including all sales initiated online or through mobile applications, including omnichannel transactions which are fulfilled through our stores.
  • As our stores were closed for a period during the first quarter of 2020, we have not included a discussion of comparable sales as we do not believe it is a meaningful metric over this period of time.
