The average number of transactions increased, suggesting traffic is improving at the mall.

Stores in the Western half of the U.S. reported a 14% increase in same store sales, in the South, same stores sales increased 13% and in the Midwest, comps rose 6%. The only weak territory was the Northeast, where same stores sales declined 2%, which Zumiez believes was due to the snowy weather.
