Same store sales decreased 5.9% compared to the prior-year period, cycling 55% same store sales growth on a 3-year stack basis. The 5.9% decrease in consolidated same store sales is comprised of a decrease in retail store same store sales of 5.7% and a decrease in e-commerce same store sales of 7.6%.

The Company opened 18 new stores, bringing its total store count to 400.

Said CEO Jim Conroy, “I am pleased with our fourth quarter performance and proud of the efforts of the entire Boot Barn team. We crossed the 400-store milestone prior to year-end and extended the Boot Barn brand to 45 states across the country. In the year, revenue showed modest growth despite experiencing a mid-single digit decline in consolidated same store sales and cycling a 53-week fiscal year. We also grew exclusive brand penetration by 370 basis points which contributed to merchandise margin expansion.”

BOOT shares dived $1.11, or 1%, to $106.01.
