Weis Markets Reports Second Quarter Results
SUNBURY, PA - In the wake of COVID-19, Weis Markets has seen firsthand the wave of a retail market shift—and came out on top. The retailer, in its latest Q2 reports, noted that its sales increased 23.7 percent to $1.1 billion during the thirteen-week period ending June 27, 2020.
"The coronavirus pandemic has altered most aspects of daily life in our seven-state market area which was impacted by full and partial shutdowns initially, and cautious reopenings in June," said Chairman and CEO Jonathan Weis. "This has resulted in customers taking an increased number of meals at home, which shifted foodservice demand to food retail."
Notable results from the financial report include:
- Second quarter net income increased 102.5 percent to $41.5 million
- Earnings per share totaled $1.54 compared to $0.76 per share for the same period in 2019
