Same-store sales climbed 13.3 percent.


A 16.6 percent increase in direct marketing sales, to $16.3 million, was led by the Internet and expanded circulation of the Brookstone catalog, "which delivered increased sales to the catalog and Internet site and significant incremental revenue to the stores," Michael Anthony, Brookstone chairman/president/CEO, said in a statement.
