E-commerce sales came in at $346.3 million, up 110.3% from the prior year quarter. SIG also saw broad growth across most regions, channels, and categories. Sales during the quarter were also supported by higher conversion and higher average order value. In fact, same-store sales surged 106.5% year over year.

These results also led to improved guidance for the second-quarter fiscal 2022. Management now expects revenues in the range of $1.6 to $1.65 billion. This is significantly higher than the $888 million generated in the year-ago quarter. 

The company also expects same-store sales between 76% and 82% in the second quarter and has raised projections for fiscal 2022. Management now expects revenues in the range of $6.50-$6.65 billion, higher than the previous projection of between $6 and $6.14 billion.
