Total revenues for the second quarter of 2012 decreased 2.0%, or $3.8 million, to $182.4 million from $186.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. The decrease primarily related to a 2.4% decrease in comparable store sales, slightly offset by additional revenues generated from new stores.

Diluted earnings per share decreased to $0.23 per share for the second quarter of 2012 from $0.34 per share for the second quarter of 2011. The decrease primarily related to the decrease in net income.

For the first six months of 2012, total revenues decreased 3.0%, or $13.4 million, to $429.2 million as compared to $442.6 million for the first six months of 2011.
