We are focused on what we can control by executing our growth and customer service strategies at a high level and effectively managing our profitability during this challenging period where sales are modestly below our expectations. As consumers prioritize value and savings, we intend to continue to grow our market share by capitalizing on our everyday low prices and value options, trend-forward broad assortments, in-stock job lot quantities, and the exceptional customer service provided by our store associates.”
