We have made significant progress during the quarter in improving our store presentation, refining our craft business, refocusing our merchandise organization and expanding our replenishment process. We have also undertaken the liquidation of our aged products. While these activities have come at an initial short term cost, we are positioning our organization for improved fall and winter seasons.”
