Fastenal sales on the grow
Fastenal Co., the Winona retailer of nuts and bolts, said its daily sales in September rose 14 percent from a year ago, higher than its internal forecast.
Sales for September, which include two more working days than in 2007, rose 26 percent from a year earlier, Fastenal said.
The company plans to release third-quarter earnings Oct. 13 but released the September data early because of the drop in share prices of some industrial stocks. Fastenal shares fell $2.40, or 5.3 percent, to close Thursday at $42.85.
