Highlights of the first quarter:

  • The number of locations increases to 2,214 locations, for a net addition of 15 outlets.
  • System wide sales decline by 1.1% compared to the same period last year, mainly because of the additional day of business in the first quarter of 2012.
  • Same store sales decrease by 3.96% for the period, affected by the reduction of one day of business in 2013, by the difficult retail environment in Canada and by adverse weather trends in December 2012 and February of 2013.
