TOANO, Va. (AP) — Lumber Liquidators saw a 19 percent drop in second quarter earnings after a rough winter that dampened construction in many regions.

Net income decreased to $16.6 million, or 60 cents per share, from $20.4 million, or 73 cents per share, in the same quarter a year ago.
The hardwood flooring retailer’s revenue climbed 2.3 percent to $263.1 million from $257.1, also matching expectations.
Same-store sales fell about 7 percent.
Shares of Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. fell 22 cents to $55.21 in a mostly down day on major U.S. markets.
