Regulation FD Disclosure

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

At an investor conference to be held on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, which will be webcast live at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the Company will be updating its first quarter 2013 outlook as follows:

As part of its earnings release and conference call on February 7, 2013, the Company indicated that it expected its first quarter 2013 operating income to be down mid to high single digits, generally due to softness in the industry carried over from fiscal year 2012, as well as tougher sales and SG&A comparisons to the Company's first quarter of fiscal year 2012, the annualization of new stores opened in 2012, including a high concentration of openings in the fourth quarter of 2012, and the return to a more normal rate of incentive compensation.

During the April 10, 2013 investor conference, the Company will indicate that while it had expected the first 90 days of fiscal 2013 to be challenging, they have been more challenging, especially in DIY, than anticipated. Some factors that have negatively impacted performance during the first quarter to date include the impacts on customers due to higher payroll taxes, delayed tax refunds and a slow start to spring. As a result, the Company now expects first quarter 2013 operating income to be slightly below the outlook previously provided by the Company.

The webcast will be accessible on the investor relations section of the Company's website at and will be archived on the Company's website until April 10, 2014.
