  • For the three months ended July 31, 2018, the gross profit rate improved by 180 basis points Y/Y. The improvement in gross profit rate for both periods was driven by lower markdowns at all three brands and leverage in store occupancy cost due to strong Retail segment comparable net sales. These gains were partially offset by deleverage in delivery expense due in part to the increased penetration of the digital channel.
