Total revenues for the second quarter of 2011 increased $5.2 million, or 2.9 percent to $186.2 million from $181.0 million for the second quarter of 2010. The increase was primarily due to a weighted average net increase of approximately nine stores as compared to the second quarter of 2010, and a 0.3 percent increase in comparable store sales.

"During the first six months of 2011, we generated $111.6 million of operating cash flow," said Michael Magusiak, president and CEO.
