Quotes

"The customer is closer than you think. Companies need to evolve and use innovation to create, understand and implement continuous improvement practices" said Dr. Langer
...It won't happen overnight – in fact, she expects it to be a 10- to 15-year process – but incremental steps are beneficial. "We dropped non-compliant suppliers; we look for WRAP-certified factories; we are hiring more qualified QCs in our China office" she offered as a few examples
Darrow concluded, "We are confident we have a solid strategy in place to drive long-term profitable growth. The La-Z-Boy brand is the strongest in the furniture industry, our branded distribution network is vast, including more than 900 locations, and we have a unique multi-channel network, where we sell through both the branded channel and to a large and varied dealer base. Our 4-4-5 store growth strategy has great potential, and we are investing in the company across multiple areas to deliver future performance. Importantly, as our retail network grows, we will leverage the efficiencies of our lean manufacturing operations and deliver ongoing results through our integrated retail model."
Darrow added, "For the period, we increased our gross margin and improved our conversion while experiencing lower traffic. These metrics would indicate a more qualified consumer is entering our stores and that our sales processes and disciplines are achieving results. In addition to opening one store, we remodeled two as we work to strengthen our portfolio of stores as part of the company's overall 4-4-5 build out strategy. As the size of this business increases, the overall enterprise will benefit from the blended wholesale and retail margin associated with our integrated retail platform."
