ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS

 

The Further Spread of H1N1 Influenza May Adversely Affect Our Business

 

During April 2009, the World Health Organization issued a warning for the H1N1 virus. The further spread of H1N1 influenza, which is more commonly known as “swine flu,” may adversely affect our business.  We could be adversely affected if one or more jurisdictions in which we have stores impose mandatory store closures or seek voluntary closures.  Furthermore, shoppers may seek to avoid crowded or enclosed locations such as malls, where substantially all of our stores are located.  H1N1 influenza also could adversely affect our ability to adequately staff our stores, receive merchandise deliveries on a timely basis and/or perform functions at the corporate level.  Even if H1N1 influenza does not spread significantly or does not result in a significant number of additional fatalities, the perceived risk of infection or significant health risk may adversely affect our business.
