The chain's same-store sales increased by 4.4 percent in the fourth quarter and by 3.9 percent for full-year 2018.
Five Below says it anticipates finishing out 2019 with nearly 900 stores nationwide and that it seeks to be operating about 2,500 stores by 2020.
“Our 2018 store openings are on track to be another record class, with first-year average-unit volumes expected to be over $2 million," said President and CEO Joel Anderson.

The retailer says it expects to see same-store sales grow by 3 percent this year.
