EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Zumiez Inc.'s revenue from stores open at least a year rose 8.2 percent in June, just short of Wall Street estimates, as customers bought fewer, but higher-priced, items.
Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected, on average, sales from the Everett, Wash., sporting goods retailer to rise by 8.4 percent.
Sales at stores open at least a year is considered a key indicator of retailer health because it leaves out results from locations that have opened or closed in the last year.
Sales rose in men's wear, footwear, juniors, and accessories. Sales were weaker for boy's merchandise.
Total sales for the five weeks ended June 30 rose 18 percent to $51.3 million.
Zumiez operates 453 stores in the U.S. and 15 in Canada.
