We have continued to emphasize the footwear category and reduce our investment in the slower selling apparel category. At the end of the quarter, overall inventories were down 8 per cent per square foot primarily due to significant reductions in apparel, which decreased almost 30 per cent per square foot.

Our balance sheet remains strong with over $50 million in cash and marketable securities and no interest bearing debt as of the end of Q2.
