The Company's sales increased 0.83% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the same period of the prior year.  Like store sales also increased $8.0 million or 0.83% for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2012 compared to the thirteen weeks ended December 25, 2011.  Consolidated sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 were $968.7 million compared to $960.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

Customer counts increased over 250,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the same period of the prior year.

Gross profit margins for the thirteen weeks ended December 30, 2012 were 25.88% of sales compared to the thirteen weeks ended December 25, 2011 gross profit margin of 27.03% of sales.

The Company reported net income for the thirteen week first quarter ended December 30, 2012 of $5.4 million compared to net income for the thirteen week first quarter ended December 25, 2011 of $9.0 million.

Brown said, "The decline in net income was primarily due to a lower gross profit margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2012 as a result of our commitment to keep prices low, to the extent possible, to help our 'Valued Customers' weather these tough economic times which resulted in increasing our customer counts by 250,000 in the quarter. 

"The Company has made a conscious decision to not pass on all of the costs of inflation that we have experienced.

"The unemployment rate in our marketing area of 10.9% continues to be higher than the national average of 7.8% and State of California average of 9.8%. 

"Since the beginning of this economic crisis, we have maintained a policy of retaining and growing customer counts by providing value and superior service to our customers.  We feel it is important to retain our customers so when the economy does finally turn around they will still be shopping at their local Stater Bros. Supermarket."

Stater Bros. is the largest privately owned Supermarket Chain in Southern California and the largest private employer in both San Bernardino County and Riverside County, with annual sales in 2012 of $3.9 billion.  The Company currently operates 167 Supermarkets, and there are over 18,000 members of the Stater Bros. Supermarket Family.
