The investments in our store presentation, distinctive products, technology to better serve our customers, and effective advertising with our “discover something you” campaign are central to our competitive positioning.

"Our new store in Midland, Texas, opened in September, and we plan to open two new stores in the next six weeks as we relocate a store in McDonough, Georgia, a southern suburb of Atlanta and add a store in Allen, Texas, a part of the Dallas market.
