We depend on a number of key vendors to supply our merchandise and provide critical services, and the loss of any one of our key vendors may result in a loss of sales revenue and significantly harm our operating results.

We make merchandise purchases from hundreds of vendors. Our performance depends on our ability to purchase our merchandise in sufficient quantities at competitive prices. Our smaller vendors generally have limited resources, production capacities and operating histories, and some of our vendors have limited the distribution of their merchandise in the past. We have no long-term purchase contracts or other contractual assurances of continued supply, pricing or access to new products, and any vendor or distributor could discontinue selling to us at any time. We may not be able to acquire desired merchandise in sufficient quantities on terms acceptable to us in the future, or be able to develop relationships with new vendors to expand our offerings or replace discontinued vendors. Our inability to acquire suitable merchandise in the future or the loss of one or more key vendors and our failure to replace any one or more of them may have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

In addition, a single vendor supports our point-of-sale, merchandise management and warehouse management systems. We also rely on the same vendor for software support. A failure by this vendor to adequately support our management information systems in the future could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

We routinely purchase products from new vendors, many of whom are located abroad. We cannot assure you that they will be reliable sources of our products. Moreover, a number of these manufacturers and suppliers are small and undercapitalized firms that produce limited numbers of items. Given their limited resources, these firms might be susceptible to production difficulties, quality control issues and problems in delivering agreedupon quantities on schedule. We cannot assure you that we will be able, if necessary, to return products to these suppliers and manufacturers and obtain refunds of our purchase price or obtain reimbursement or indemnification from them if their products prove defective. These suppliers and manufacturers also may be unable to withstand a downturn in the U.S. or worldwide economy. Significant failures on the part of these suppliers or manufacturers could have a material adverse effect on our operating results. In addition, recent weaknesses in the dollar may have an impact on the cost of merchandise that we source from abroad, such as by increasing our suppliers’ cost of business and ultimately our cost of goods sold and our selling, general and administrative expenses.

Further, many of these suppliers and manufacturers require extensive advance notice of our requirements in order to produce products in the quantities we desire. This long lead time requires us to place orders far in advance of the time when certain products will be offered for sale, thereby exposing us to risks relating to shifts in customer demands and trends, and any downturn in the U.S. economy.

This excerpt taken from the RSTO 10-K filed Apr 14, 2005.

We depend on a number of key vendors to supply our merchandise and provide critical services, and the loss of any one of our key vendors may result in a loss of sales revenue and significantly harm our operating results.

We make merchandise purchases from over 500 vendors. Our performance depends on our ability to purchase our merchandise in sufficient quantities at competitive prices. Our smaller vendors generally have limited resources, production capacities and operating histories, and some of our vendors have limited the distribution of their merchandise in the past. We have no long-term purchase contracts or other contractual assurances of continued supply, pricing or access to new products, and any vendor or distributor could discontinue selling to us at any time. We may not be able to acquire desired merchandise in sufficient quantities on terms acceptable to us in the future, or be able to develop relationships with new

Our inability to acquire suitable merchandise in the future or the loss of one or more key vendors and our failure to replace any one or more of them may have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
