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.

Same store sales increased 9.4% for the four weeks ended July 31.

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%

Regions: Same store sales for the Southern region rose 10%, while stores in the West, Midwest and East recorded a 7% increase. E-commerce also reported strong comps.

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

Weak categories: hardgoods, juniors.

Q2 comps: up 9.3%
