 Commenting on November 1991 sales, Julian Seeherman, chairman and chief executive officer said, "We are extremely pleased with November results. The loss of the one week of shopping between Thanksgiving and Christmas was partially compensated for by optimum weather conditions in early November and strong Christmas buying at the end of the month. We continue to see customers responding to quailty merchandise at value prices and we are benefiting from this. Both fall and Christmas merchandise is selling well, particularly footwear, fleece sweatshirts and pants for the entire family, trim-a-tree and toys. We are cautiously optimistic about the Christmas season, but encouraged by our early results."
 Venture operates 84 quality discount retail stores in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa and Kentucky.
