Exactly. This is exactly what the article mentioned; that because of the proliferation of coupon use and the expectation that a coupon could be used for each item, the margins at BBB are extremely low. That is coupled with low in-store sales. Yesterday, there was an excellent article in The Business Insider about BBB's earnings and how the past 12-months have been particularly rough and even worse than management had predicted.
