During the year we added new functionality and services to our e-Commerce capabilities and began positioning our stores as facilitators and ambassadors for Pier1.com. We are working hard to improve the Pier 1 Imports brand experience in every way – strengthening our store portfolio with new and relocated stores and continually enhancing our ability to provide customers with a seamless shopping experience.
