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

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.
