La-Z-Boy -9.8% as weather hurts sales

  • La-Z-Boy (LZB) -9.8% AH as investors aren't accepting the often-used weather excuse to explain FQ4 results which include the company's first decline in same-store in three-and-a-half years.
  • Although overall sales rose 2.1% to $353M, same-store sales for the furniture galleries store network fell 0.9% for the quarter after an 11.2% increase in the year-ago period.
  • LZB says sales were adversely impacted by weather issues beginning in FQ3, which affected the written order rate, and extending into FQ4.

    What hurt sales more than anything else at La-Z-Boy wasn't weather, it was lack of modern product. Their chairs and sofas belong to a long past era, and they need to re-invent themselves, soon.
