Circuit City Stores, Inc. today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended Feb. 28, 2007.

In the fourth quarter ended Feb. 28, 2007, net sales increased 1.2 percent to U.S. $3.93 billion from $3.89 billion in the same period last year, with consolidated comparable store sales decreasing 0.5 percent compared to a comparable store gain of 11.6 from the prior year.

The consolidated gross profit margin was 23.7 percent in the fourth quarter compared with 24.6 percent in the same period last fiscal year. Domestic segment gross profit margin declined 45 basis points from the prior year, impacting the consolidated gross profit margin by 41 basis points, driven by a decrease in extended warranty net sales as a percentage of domestic segment net sales.
