We are working on the development of new or enhanced sales programs - expanding our product offerings for children and developing a curriculum for educators, for example - as well as while sticking with proven, more traditional leather work programs in order to generate sales. And we will continue to manage expenses closely in order to maximize profitability given the very difficult retail environment."
