”Overall they have a real estate relocation program which is adding 3% to sales on its own. On top of that they’ve been adding more merchandise to their stores and re-merchandising more categories within their stores. And they have square footage growth of about 5%."

"So if you add all that up you get 10% growth potential,” Parkhill concludes.
