 Julian Seeherman, chairman and chief executive officer said, "We are pleased with our May sales results which were above our plan despite the cool weather in the fourth week of the month. Seasonal businesses were under extreme pressure versus last year due to the unseasonably warm weather last May. Basic business in housewares, electronics and domestics along with strong toy sales were major contributors to our sales performance. We continue to plan cautiously and expect the slow growth of the economy to continue for the rest of the year. Value and quality will continue to be the major reasons for consumers to spend money, and we believe we will benefit from this attitude."
 Venture operates 91 quality discount retail store in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa and Kentucky.
