    PIR Info

    Althouh PIR is considered specialty retail store
    it's stock price is not only tied to the seasonal
    nature of retail stores but there also are other factors
    that effect its stock price.

    One is that it is
    not a discount store like Sears and Walmart therefor
    its doesn't have a diverse inventory and doesn't
    appeal to the masses. Its customers are either improving
    thier home or buying a gift. The former which ties the
    stock price to housing starts/expansions/improvements
    which add the variable of availability of home
    financing to customer disposible income.
