Item 4.02.  Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.


The Company has reviewed its method of accounting for leases in response to views expressed in a letter issued by the Office of the Chief Accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on February 7, 2005.  As a result of this review, on March 4, 2005 management of the Company advised the Company’s Audit Committee of the Board of Directors that it had made a determination, similar to recent determinations by many other retail companies, that its current method of accounting for leases was not consistent with the recently expressed views of the SEC staff.


Management and the Audit Committee also discussed these issues with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche, LLP.  As a result, the Audit Committee concurs with the Company’s determination that the prior accounting for these leases was in error and will require restatement of certain prior period financial statements.  Accordingly, the Company has determined that its previously issued financial statements, including those for fiscal 2002 and 2003 contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2004, should no longer be relied on.


Historically, and consistent with industry practice, the Company had recognized the straight line rent expense for leases beginning on the earlier of the store opening date or the lease commencement date, which had the effect of excluding the construction period of its stores (rent holiday) from the calculation of the period over which it expensed rent.  After further evaluation of the SEC’s views and consultation with its independent auditors, the Company determined it will include the construction period in its calculation of straight line rent in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Technical Bulletin No. 85-3, “Accounting for Operating Leases with Scheduled Rent Increases” and will correct its straight line rent accrual and deferred rent credits accordingly.


The Company anticipates filing the corrections to its financial statements in conjunction with the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2005.


On March 8, 2005, the Company announced via press release that it is revising its method of accounting for leases as a result of views expressed by the Office of the Chief Accountant of the SEC on February 7, 2005.  The full text of the press release issued by the Company is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
