    • our investments in infrastructure delivering operating leverage and
    • our team meeting the evolving needs of our customers and communities...
  • We opened six new stores during the quarter, bringing total stores to 48 nationwide, and successfully introduced an e-commerce platform enabling delivery and curb-side pickup.
  • We also improved standardization and automation in production, resulting in improved speed-to-market of our consumer products.
  • In early July, we opened our Toledo, Ohio manufacturing facility and began production and distribution of our brand portfolio in Ohio. We expect this, along with other capacity expansion projects in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, to further propel our business in the second half of 2020.
