"Looking ahead, we expect a solid finish to the back-to-school season as well as momentum from strong product offerings in the back half of the year,” said CEO Jeff Rosenthal. “We are encouraged by City Gear's early performance as they enter the second half with a strong inventory position along with the planned migration to the Hibbett digital platform. Based on the strength of the first half and our confidence in the second half, we have updated our annual guidance."
