Within our geographic footprint there are nine regions, each managed by a team including a Real Estate Manager and Real Estate Specialist. These teams are responsible for deploying the strategy for their respective regions. This is accomplished through a distinct combination of prototype, occupancy type, and development type. One of our competitive advantages is our ability to fit into the community in which we locate with the proper scale, prototype, and development type to meet our customers' needs. We are passionately focused on creating and perpetuating the shopping experience our customers have enjoyed for more than 90 years and helps us live up to our slogan: Where shopping is a pleasure.
