Denver -- Ace Hardware stores are showing strong same-store sales, while the distributor's wholesale sales are running ahead of the budgeted 3% growth, CEO Ray Griffith told dealers.

Speaking Saturday morning at the General Session of the co-op's 2011 Convention & Exhibits here at the Colorado Convention Center, Griffith said data from about 3,000 Ace stores show a 2.4% comparable-store sales increase over last year. In each of the last four months, the stores showed comp-sales increases of more than 4%.

Toano, Va.-based hardwood flooring retailer Lumber Liquidators posted first-quarter net sales of $159.7 million, a 5.6% increase from sales of $151.2 million in the first quarter of 2010. Comparable-store sales decreased 4.3% for the quarter, compared with an increase of 8.0% for the first quarter of the prior year. The drop in same-store sales was attributed to “the adverse impact of inconsistent servicing of new demand following the implementation of the company's integrated technology solution in August 2010,” according to a press release.
