More on Family Dollar Stores' (FDO) FQ2: Comparable store sales increase of 4.5% led by Consumables and Seasonal and Electronics categories. Lower store expenses partially offset by higher advertising costs. Expects to see comparable store sales growth of 5%-7% in FQ3 and realize EPS between $1.01-$1.11. Plans to open 400-500 new stores, while closing 80-100 stores. (PR)
