"In 2015, our overall results benefited from strategic pricing investments and the ongoing improvement of our store assortments by market," Jonathan Weis, chairman and CEO, said in a statement. "In addition, improved store level, supply chain and store support efficiencies helped us deliver a better customer experience, which helped us increase customer traffic and our overall market share."

Weis said it was unable to file its 10-K annual report with the Securities and Exchange Commission due to delays resulting from a reassessment of self-insurance reserves that also delayed its third-quarter financial statements.
