We continue to focus on delivering trend right product at great value to our targeted customer. At the same time, we are committed to driving productivity improvements in our business and we are actively pursuing opportunities in a number of areas."

Mr. Hoffman continued, "We entered the second quarter well positioned in terms of inventory levels and spring forward content and we will continue our disciplined approach to inventory management throughout the year."

"Based on our current outlook, the Company would guide investors to expect low single digit comparable store sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 and diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.12 to $0.15.
