Duane Reade Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2008 Results
Date:3/10/2009

Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total net sales was 26.9% in 2008 compared to 26.5% in the prior year.

These items were partially offset by improved leveraging of costs against strong same-store sales growth in both pharmacy and front-end.

For the full year, operating loss was $15.8 million compared with a $24.6 million operating loss in the prior year.
