Well, good luck to you! I'm watching this close too. Cost averaging down so maybe If I have to get out I'll have cut my losses. My only hope is that they can increase margins enough to keep the boat afloat. Today they're ending another 40% off sale. I hope they did well! Now to just catch the last minute shoppers at lower discounts. I do have some confidence in the change of marketing strategy they are undergoing. You need to read the notes to the financial statements to glean all of them out. Their CEO has caught alot of flack from their poor performance, however, I notice he is also a board member of Cracker Barrel, and they are doing pretty good. From the retail side of their strategy, I understand what they're trying to do...I just hope it pans out for them. And us!

Have a great day!
