Hechinger Co.

This Landover-based home improvement store chain reported yesterday that it enjoyed strong sales growth during its third quarter, but those numbers didn't find their way to the bottom line.

Despite a 16 percent gain in sales compared with last year's third quarter, earnings stayed flat at $6.5 million, or 16 cents a share.

Hechinger said that an increased pace of store openings added $2 million to expenses during the quarter.
