The company generated net income for the quarter of $3.9 million or $0.19 per diluted share versus $6.5 million or $0.32 per diluted share in the second quarter of the previous year.

Comparable store sales for stores open at least one full fiscal year were flat for the second quarter of 2005 as compared to the second quarter of 2004.

For the six months ended June 25, 2005, the company recorded net sales of $215.8 million compared to $220.5 million in the prior year.
