“We had an exceptionally strong Q2 in which we delivered our highest ever quarterly sales and earnings. These results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teammates, who reacted quickly to favorable shifts in consumer demand throughout the quarter. During this pandemic, the importance of health and fitness has accelerated and participation in socially distant, outdoor activities has increased.

The majority of our assortment sits squarely at the center of these trends, and while mindful of the uncertainty in the current environment, we are in a great lane right now.”
