Mr. Perisano further stated, “Despite these events, sales in December 2011 were strong, and that trend has continued through January 2012 and continues to date, with January sales additionally supplemented by the post season successes of the New England Patriots. We are cautiously optimistic that underlying consumer demand in 2012 will continue to strengthen. We are pleased with the early results in our Manchester, Connecticut market, where we consolidated two stores into one late in 2011, and also with the performance of our West Lebanon, New Hampshire store, which we reopened in January. Also, having re-launched our e-commerce site in 2011 with a full Halloween merchandise assortment, we intend to expand our online offerings in 2012 to include birthday and other party categories. Additionally, we believe that our ability to control key costs in 2011 and the extension to our revolving credit facility has allowed us to enter 2012 with liquidity sufficient to grow our business in 2012 and beyond.”
