“After a record-setting second quarter, we maintained our momentum, continued to outperform expectations, and grew faster than competitors in the third quarter,” said Overstock CEO Jonathan Johnson. “Our quarterly gross sales in our retail business doubled year over year once again and new customers grew 141%. These new customers are making repeat purchases at an increasing rate. Heading into the fourth quarter, I am as confident as ever in our retail business maintaining sustainable, profitable market share growth.”
