Year-to-date sales for Retail Leathercraft are $4.1 million this year, a 2% increase over sales of $4.0 million for the same period of 2007. As of the end of February, the 64 comparable stores' sales were down 4% compared to sales reported for the same period in 2007.

Wholesale Leathercraft posted sales of $2.3 million for February, a 12% decline from February 2007 sales of $2.6 million.

For the year to date, Wholesale Leathercraft sales are $5.0 million compared to $5.2 million in 2007.

The new UK store, which operates as a combination retail and wholesale store, added sales of $11,000 in February. It was opened on February 18th.

Chief Executive Officer and President, RonMorgan, commented, "As expected, we're seeing continued weakness in our sales, although our retail stores looked a little better than they did last month. There are too many concerns about the economy right now on the part of consumers and until that changes, I expect retailers will continue to experience pressure on their sales. We will continue to invest in the development of our customer base so that at the time they have money to spend, we will be there."

Shannon L. Greene, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, added, "I think we are off to a good start in our UK store. Every day, there are new customers requesting catalogs and placing orders. We are confident in our UK store operations team to develop a solid business in hopes of offsetting some of the weakness we're experiencing here in the U.S.
