Weis Markets profit rises in Q2; sales flat

Sunbury, Pa. -- Weis Markets reported Tuesday that net income for the quarter ended June 30 rose 12.1% to $23.2 million, compared with $20.7 million in the year-ago period.

Sales were essentially flat at $677.1 million, and same-store sales inched up 0.4%.

President and CEO David Hepfinger cited a “stagnant sales environment” for the near-flat sales but said the grocer continues to improve efficiencies and store-level productivity.
