The Company's comparable store sales increased 21.5% for the four-week period, versus a comparable store sales decrease of 8.9% in the year ago period.

Rick Brooks, Chief Executive Officer of Zumiez, stated, "Our business has performed well all year and accelerated during the third quarter. The strong sales and margin trends we experienced through September improved in October driven by compelling product and great sales teams. We saw sales increases in all departments and in all regions across the U.S. We are encouraged by the strength of our results and our recent performance confirms our optimism about the long-term prospects of our business.
