Total net sales were $161.7 million, an increase of $4.3 million or 2.8%, compared to $157.4 million last year. The Company ended the second quarter of fiscal 2019 with 229 total stores, including two RSQ-branded pop-up stores, compared to 226 total stores, including three RSQ-branded pop-up stores, last year.
Comparable store net sales, which includes e-commerce net sales, increased 0.6% compared to last year's second quarter increase of 4.4%. E-commerce net sales increased 15.7% and represented approximately 14.1% of total net sales this year, compared to an increase of 8.1% and a 12.5% share of total net sales last year. Comparable store net sales in physical stores decreased 1.5% and represented approximately 85.9% of total net sales, compared to an increase of 3.8% and an 87.5% share of total net sales last year. Comparable store net sales in physical stores decreased by a high single-digit percentage in May, but increased by a low single-digit percentage in each of June and July.
Gross profit was $51.7 million, an increase of $1.6 million or 3.2%, compared to $50.1 million last year. Gross margin, or gross profit as a percentage of net sales, increased to 32.0% from 31.8% last year. Product margins were flat as a percentage of net sales. Buying, distribution and occupancy costs improved by 10 basis points in total. Improved leverage of buying and occupancy costs as a percentage of net sales more than offset higher e-commerce shipping costs associated with e-commerce net sales growth.
Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were $39.6 million, or 24.5% of net sales, compared to $37.6 million, or 23.9% of net sales, last year. The $2.0 million increase in SG&A was primarily attributable to a $1.5 million credit in last year's SG&A resulting from the favorable resolution of a previously disclosed legal matter. Additionally, higher e-commerce marketing and fulfillment expenses of approximately $1.0 million associated with e-commerce net sales growth and higher store payroll expenses of approximately $0.9 million due to minimum wage and annual merit increases were partially offset by a $1.2 million reduction in bonus expenses and $0.5 million reduction in non-cash charges.
Operating income was $12.1 million, or 7.5% of net sales, compared to $12.5 million, or 7.9% of net sales, last year. This slight decline in operating income was primarily attributable to last year's $1.5 million legal matter credit noted above.
Income tax expense was $3.4 million, or 26.8% of pre-tax income, compared to $3.3 million, or 25.3% of pre-tax income, last year.
