The Company estimates that these closures negatively impacted September comparable store results by slightly less than 1.0 percent. Two stores were closed the entire month due to Hurricane Katrina and remain closed as restoration efforts continue. Landlords currently project mall re-openings for these stores prior to Holiday 2005. Additionally, two stores have been closed since September 22nd due to Hurricane Rita and are waiting for power and water to be restored in their areas. Landlords have indicated that these stores should be able to re-open within the next couple weeks.
