It's in their interest to do as quick a job, as good a job as possible, to protect their employees as well as customers.

Many stores have damaged inventory. If they had merchandise on the floors or in boxes and it got waterlogged, they won't be able to sell it.

Nothing like this has ever happened. I keep hearing it's a once-in-a-lifetime event, and I certainly hope so.

We'd like to see it end anyway. It's driving everybody crazy.

The stores are working on compensation themselves.

I would just say to be cautious, no matter what kind of water.

On the face of it, it looks like most of the stores handled it properly and very quickly.

The theaters were the hardest hit, but to some extent all the stores got water intrusion.

So we felt it was probably water that was contaminated, so our objective was to get rid of the water immediately.
