Competition

The retail market is highly competitive. We compete against a diverse group of retailers ranging from specialty stores to traditional furniture stores and department stores. Our product offerings also compete with a variety of national, regional and local retailers. We compete with these and other retailers for customers, suitable retail locations, suppliers, qualified employees and management personnel. Many of our competitors have significantly greater financial, marketing and other resources. Moreover, increased competition may result, and has resulted in the past, in potential or actual litigation between us and our competitors relating to such activities as competitive sales and hiring practices, exclusive relationships with key suppliers and manufacturers and other matters. As a result, increased competition may adversely affect our financial performance, and we cannot assure you that we will be able to compete successfully in the future.

We believe that our ability to compete successfully is determined by several factors, including, among other things, the strength of our management team, the breadth and quality of our product selection and merchandise presentation, the quality of our customer service, our pricing, our store locations, and the effectiveness of our catalog circulation strategies. Although we believe that we are able to compete favorably on the basis of these factors, we may not ultimately succeed in competing with other retailers in our market.
