In the first half of the year we have opened a total of 18 mall-based stores, including 10 in line stores and 8 kiosks. During the second quarter of 2013, Crumbs opened 7 mall-based stores and 3 kiosks in, or adjacent to, current trading areas.
The Company has also expressed its intention to close certain street-level stores in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Metropolitan New York City, and Washington D.C that management believes will be unable to reach acceptable levels of financial performance. Although none of those stores were closed during the second quarter, Crumbs has reached agreements and expects to close at least five stores in Connecticut, California, Illinois and Metropolitan New York City by the end of the year.
