       Form 10-K for the Fiscal Year Ended January 30, 2022

       Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations
       Fiscal 2021 Compared to Fiscal 2020
       Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
       Adjusted EBITDA, page 38

   1.                                                   Adjusted EBITDA appears
to be a company-level non-GAAP measure, rather than a
                                                        store-level non-GAAP
measure, like store operating income before depreciation and
                                                        amortization. Please
remove the pre-opening expenses adjustment from Adjusted
                                                        EBITDA, as it appears
to represent normal, recurring, cash operating expenses necessary
                                                        to operate your
business. Refer to Question 100.01 of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures
                                                        Compliance and
Disclosure Interpretations.
