 Commenting on February sales, Julian Seeherman, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We are extremely pleased with our February sales results, particularly in light of the fact that February 1991 was a good month as well. Both apparel and hardlines responded well for the month, further reinforcing our belief that customers continue to be value and quality driven and that we are benefiting from this. While we feel more optimistic about business than we had in the past, we are still anticipating a slow growth economy and are planning accordingly."
 Venture operates 84 quality discount retail stores in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa, and Kentucky.
