Steve Morgan, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "The second quarter numbers are encouraging and in line with our expectations based on the initiatives we have been putting into place for this past year. We are about to complete our 10th consecutive month of positive comparable store sales. Along with the approximately $4 million of expense cuts we initiated in April, and in spite of the increasingly promotional nature of our business, we continue to feel confident in our direction for the balance of the year."

Morgan continued, "We have now opened six of our new prototype stores since March 9th of this year, replacing oversized, outdated, and antiquated stores as these leases expired. As a group, these stores are comping up almost 30% inception to date.

“We believe that our inventory position as well as our personnel are greatly improved over this time last year, and this gives us a healthy confidence going into the important 3rd and 4th quarters."
