This year's five-week period contained an extra day compared to last year, due to the timing of the New Year's holiday, which positively impacted total and comparable sales by approximately 2%.

For the first seventeen weeks of its fiscal year ended December 30, 2012, the Company reported net sales of $34.42 billion, an increase of nine percent from $31.68 billion during the similar period last year.

Comparable sales for the five-week and seventeen-week periods ended December 30, 2012, were as follows:

Inflation in gasoline prices and stronger foreign currencies had a positive impact on comparable sales. Excluding these effects, comparable sales were as follows:

                                     5 Weeks 17 Weeks
                                    -------- --------
