We were also very excited to have closed our acquisition of Teaopia, completed our search for our first VP of Marketing and opened our first store in Manhattan, which is performing extremely well. Our integration of Teaopia is well underway with numerous stores already converted to Teavana and performing ahead of expectations. Our new stores this year continue to perform above plan, and we’ve already opened 38 of the expected 60 new stores for this year. Finally, our VP of Marketing started with Teavana today, and we look forward to working with him to develop and roll out marketing programs that will further strengthen the Teavana brand and our engagement with customers.”
