What factors go into the decision to close a store?

The decision to close a store is always very difficult. Servicing our customers is critical to us, and we keep that in mind when making our decision. 

Our overall corporate real estate strategy is focused on optimizing our store fleet and effectively allocating our square footage across all brands to better serve our customers.

We evaluate our stores from a market perspective, and the decision to close a store is based on various criteria including how many stores are located in that market, where the stores are located and how the store is performing

Information regarding individual store performance is not available.

What happens to the employees impacted by the store closing?

Our goal is to minimize the impact to our employees. It's our policy to make every effort to keep managers and sales associates within the company by offering employees a transfer to a nearby store. When opportunities nearby aren't available, or relocation is not possible, employees are offered a severance package.
