Zumiez said Thursday that revenue at stores open at least a year rose 1.1 percent in May, but the increase was smaller than Wall Street expected.
Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters predicted the figure would climb 2.3 percent.
Revenue at stores open at least a year is a key gauge of a retailer’s health because it excludes results from stores recently opened or closed.
Lynnwood-based Zumiez, which sells surf- and skate-themed clothing, footwear, equipment and accessories, said total revenue for the four weeks ended June 1 climbed 16.7 percent to $43.6 million.
