   Friday, November 03, 2017 4:15:00 PM ET

In the third quarter, the Company’s net income decreased 58.1 percent to $4.4 million while earnings per share totaled $0.16 compared to $0.40 in 2016. The Company attributed this decline to its aggressive promotional and pricing programs; price deflation in produce, deli and food service, bakery and seafood; and inventory management challenges in some of its recently acquired stores.

Year to Date

For the 39-week period ended September 30, 2017, the Company’s sales increased 16.8 percent to $2.6 billion compared to $2.2 billion for the same period in 2016 while comparable store sales were up 1.6 percent. Year-to-date net income totaled $34.8 million, down 24.5 percent compared to the same period in 2016 while earnings per share totaled $1.29 compared to $1.71 in 2016.
