other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any

consumer confidence, local economic conditions or changes in consumer
preferences and the Company's ability to effectively execute on its
growth strategy; the failure to maintain and enhance its strong brand
image; to compete effectively; to maintain good relationships with its
key suppliers; and to improve and expand its exclusive product
offerings. The Company discusses the foregoing risks and other risks in
greater detail under the heading "Risk factors" in the periodic reports
filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Although the Company believes that these forward-looking statements are
based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors
could affect the Company's actual financial results and cause them to
differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking
