Analysis: Results were affected by unseasonable weather, said CEO Jill Dean. “We were able to more than offset softer-than-expected sales through gross margin rate expansion and disciplined expense management, delivering results consistent with the higher end of our expectations,” she said in a release.

The company also continued to close some retail stores, part of long-term strategy.
