(a) In 2011 and 2010, the Company operated 18 full-service supermarkets in Southern California through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Gelson’s Markets (Gelson’s). Year over year sales increases were due, to a great extent, to both inflation and an increase in the number of transactions in 2011 compared to 2010. Increased sales also reflect improvement in the economic environment in our local trade areas despite intense competition and cautious consumer purchasing behavior.
