According to Zacks, “After reporting a disappointing first quarter, Kirkland's posted narrower-than-expected loss and better-than-expected revenues in second-quarter fiscal 2017. In addition, Kirkland's recorded net sales growth of 7.0% due to increase in store count as well as comps growth. Sales were also driven by improved trends in existing stores, new store productivity and continued momentum in online activities. The growth in e-Commerce revenues were backed by a strong increase in website traffic, conversion and average order value. These efforts are clearly seen in the share price performance of the company, which has improved significantly in the last three months in comparison to the industry.
