For 2019, we are focused on growing our off-price stores, emphasizing trending merchandise to drive sales, and exiting underperforming department stores. Our off-price store conversions and expansion of the home category within our department stores during the current year contributed to the 1.8% increase in comparable sales for the second quarter 2019. We expect these initiatives, along with additional off-price store conversions scheduled for the second half of the year, to generate positive comparable sales for 2019.
