or 36.8% period over period, primarily due to decrease in our wholesale business, offset by slight increase in our retail business:(1)
Wholesale revenue, which represented 34.4% of total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013, decreased by $10,364,687 or 64.1%. Such significant contraction resulted from ongoing implementation of our new wholesale strategy to focus on profitability rather than sales volume.
Thus, our wholesale profit margin increased from 2.5% to 18.6%.

Retail sales, which accounted for approximately 65.6% of total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013, increased by $554,994 or 5.3% to $11,052,942.
Same-store sales increased by approximately $66,080 or 0.7%, while online sales contributed approximately $1,596,950 in revenue, an increase of 85.6%.
The increase in same-store sales reflects implementation of key drugstore operational strategies such as promoting sale through our doctors and clinics, as well as modest economic growth in China.
