Highlight of Business Operations:

The Company receives funds for a variety of merchandising activities from the many vendors whose products the Company buys for resale in its stores. These incentives and allowances are primarily comprised of volume or purchase based incentives, advertising allowances, slotting fees, and promotional discounts. The purpose of these incentives and allowances is generally to help defray the costs incurred by the Company for stocking, advertising, promoting and selling the vendor’s products. These allowances generally relate to short term arrangements with vendors, often relating to a period of a month or less, and are negotiated on a purchase-by-purchase or transaction-by-transaction basis. Whenever possible, vendor discounts and allowances that relate to buying and merchandising activities are recorded as a component of item cost in inventory and recognized in merchandise costs when the item is sold. Due to system constraints and the nature of certain allowances, it is sometimes not practicable to apply allowances to the item cost of inventory. In those instances, the allowances are applied as a reduction of merchandise costs using a rational and systematic methodology, which results in the recognition of these incentives when the inventory related to the vendor consideration received is sold. Vendor allowances applied as a reduction of merchandise costs totaled $26.8 million and $25.6 million for the fiscal quarters ended March 27, 2010 and March 28, 2009, respectively. For the six-month periods ended March 27, 2010 and March 28, 2009, vendor allowances applied as a reduction of merchandise costs totaled $52.9 million and $49.2 million, respectively. Vendor advertising allowances that represent a reimbursement of specific identifiable incremental costs of advertising the vendor’s specific products are recorded as a reduction to the related expense in the period in which the related expense is incurred. Vendor advertising allowances recorded as a reduction of advertising expense totaled $3.3 million for the fiscal quarter ended March 27, 2010 and $3.2 million for the fiscal quarter ended March 28, 2009. For the six-month periods ended March 27, 2010 and March 28, 2009, vendor advertising allowances recorded as a reduction of advertising expense totaled $6.8 million and $6.5 million, respectively.
