Highlights

Fred's is an operator of discount stores primarily in the southeastern US states. The company offers a variety of merchandize at low price as it serves low, middle and fixed income families located in small to medium sized towns.The low priced merchandize mix gives it a competitive advantage and improves customer traffic to its stores

Fred's operates in three segments of the retail value chain: wholesale (procurement of stock), operations and distribution (warehousing and transportation) and sales (physical store sales and online sales). The company does not have presence in two other sections of the retail value chain: raw materials and manufacture.

Fred's plans to restructure its operations to reduce cost and utilize the savings for other business development activities. In line with this strategy, the company intends to close down about 75 underperforming stores, which generated approximately $9 million of operating loss, in the fiscal year 2008.
