Zumiez reported strong comparable sales for July and raised its earnings guidance for the second quarter based on better than expected sales and product margins.

Last year in July, same store sales declined 6.8%.

The company now expects to report a net loss of 2 to 3 cents per share vs. the previous forecast of a net loss of 7 to 10 cents per share. The loss is due to charges from relocating the company’s distribution center from Washington to California.

Comps by week were:

1. up 10.9%

2. up 7.7%

3. up 9.1%

4. up 9.8%

Strong categories: Accessories, men’s, footwear, boys.

Weak categories: hardgoods, juniors.
