We were very pleased with the strong customer response to our merchandise offering and marketing efforts on days that were not adversely affected by weather. 
 
Looking ahead, we remain focused on our key strategies, which include refining our merchandise assortment, maintaining healthy inventory levels, creating compelling marketing programs and capitalizing on our eCommerce site to drive incremental traffic and sales. In addition, we will continue to execute on our real estate plans designed to drive higher store sales productivity and four-wall operating profit. We look forward to building upon our momentum and believe that we are on track to deliver on our three-year growth plan."
