Well, we are past the July 4 holiday and the Summer Season ’09 is underway. Trends that we thought were going to be strong have proved us correct. While some reports in the media make you believe that shopping is a scandalous activity and splurging is an unspeakable crime, we believe that shopping is a necessity and material treat. And, in these times, I don’t know about you, but a little shopping therapy can do ya’ good!
