Store closing and impairment charges
 
In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, Accounting for the Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, long-lived assets to be “held and used” are reviewed for impairment when events or circumstances exist that indicate the carrying amount of those assets may not be recoverable. We regularly analyze the operating results of our stores and assess the viability of under-performing stores to determine whether they should be closed or whether their associated assets, including furniture, fixtures, equipment, and leasehold improvements, have been impaired. Asset impairment tests are performed at least annually, on a store-by-store basis. After allowing for an appropriate start-up period, unusual nonrecurring events, and favorable trends, fixed assets of stores indicated to be impaired are written down to fair value. During the years ended February 3, 2007, February 2, 2008 and January 31, 2009, we recorded $55,266, $3,131,169, and $2,609,588, respectively, in noncash charges to earnings related to the impairment of long-lived assets.

Impairment expense in fiscal year 2007 related to certain underperforming stores and three prototype stores that we operated and have now determined to no longer be consistent with our strategic focus. The prototype locations will be converted into Wild Pair stores in 2008.
