Our long term store real estate goal is to bring our stores back to best in class productivity and profitability. Today we believe that the optimal number of Build-A-Bear Workshop stores in North America is between 225 to 250 and approximately 70 in the United Kingdom and Ireland for a total of 295 to 320 stores. We expect to reach this level within the next two years with the closure of 50 to 60 stores.
