Looking forward, we are focused on a path of significant total growth; and while much of our effort today is being placed on making sure we have a very successful Holiday season, we are also working to ensure that we open 100 stores in 2010 and continue the store growth pattern we have been on for the past several years."

Mr. Fisch continued: "I want to thank the entire rue21 team for their hard work and effort. We continue to raise the bar and take the company to the next level, in both business actions as well as having fun in what we do as a team at rue."
