Havertys sales rise in Q2

Atlanta – Havertys sales for second quarter 2014 increased 2.4% to $175.1 million, compared with $171.1 million for the second quarter of 2013. On a same-store basis, sales for the quarter increased 3.2%.

Havertys closed its Plano, Texas, store in May. In the third quarter, the company will open a new store in Fort Worth, Texas, and relocate its Fayetteville, North Carolina, showroom.

“Sales for the second quarter showed growth in the categories of upholstery, mattresses, and accessories,” said Clarence H. Smith, chairman, president and CEO of Havertys. “Our supplier order fulfillment for wood products continued to challenge case goods sales. There has been recent improvement with the exception of a major Chinese manufacturer and we expect lead times to stabilize over the remainder of the year. Our sales results were up against tough double-digit increases in 2013.”
