Explanatory Statement
 
Why we are filing this Amendment to our Form 10-K
 
We are filing this Amendment No. 1 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended February 3, 2012, which we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 2, 2012 (the “10-K Report”), to correct a technical error that appeared in the original Interactive Data File included as Exhibit 101 to the 10-K Report.

In the detail tagging within the Interactive Data File of the Commitments and Contingencies footnote to the original filing, we are correcting the value associated with non-cancelable commitments due 2012 to $590 million as opposed to the $5 million reflected in the original tagging.

Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 of the Rules and Regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company has included with this Amendment No. 1 currently-dated certifications by the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as required by Exchange Act Rules 13a-14(a) and (b).

Except for Exhibit 101 submitted herewith and the currently-dated certifications, this Amendment No. 1 makes no other changes to the 10-K Report as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and posted on our web site on April 2, 2012. We have posted on our website a corrected version of the Interactive Data File included as Exhibit 101 to the 10-K Report.

Foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities are translated into U.S. dollars using the exchange rates in effect at the consolidated balance sheet date. Results of operations and cash flows are translated using the average exchange rates throughout the period. The effect of exchange rate fluctuations on translation of assets and liabilities is included as a component of shareholders' equity in accumulated other comprehensive </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">income </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">(loss).

The Company bases these estimates on historical results and various other assumptions believed to be reasonable, all of which form the basis for making estimates concerning the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily available from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p> <p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;margin-left:0px;">Cash and Cash Equivalents</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> - Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, demand deposits and short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less when purchased. </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">Cash and cash equivalents are carried at amortized cost on the consolidated balance sheets. </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">The majority of payments due from financial institutions for the settlement of credit card and debit card transactions process within two business days and are, therefore, classified as cash and cash equivalents. </font></p> <p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;margin-left:0px;">Investments</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> - </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">As of February 3, 2012, investments consisted primarily of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">money market funds, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">municipal </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">obligations, municipal </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">floating rate </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">obligations</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">and mutual funds. The Company classifies as investments restricted balances pledged as collateral for the Company's extended protection plan program and for a portion of the Company's casualty insurance and Installed Sales program liabilities. </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">Investments, exclusive of cash equivalents, with a stated maturity date of one year or less from the balance sheet date or that are expected to be used in current operations, are classified as short-term investments. The Company's trading securities are also classified as short-term investments. All other investmen</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">ts are classified as long-term.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">The Company maintains investment securities</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> that were previously held</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> in conjunction with certain employee benefit plans that are classified as trading securities. These securities are carried at fair value with unrealized gains and losses included in SG&amp;A expense. All other investment securities are classified as available-for-sale and are carried at fair value with unrealized gains and losses included in accumulated other comprehensive income </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">(loss) </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">in shareholders' equity.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p> <p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">The Company receives funds from vendors in the normal course of business, principally as a result of purchase volumes, sales, early payments or promotions of vendors' products, which generally do not represent the reimbursement of specific, incremental and identifiable costs incurred </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">by the Company </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">to sell the vendor's product. These funds are treated as a reduction in the cost of inventory as the amounts are accrued, and are recognized as a reduction of cost of sales when the inventory is sold. The Company develops accrual rates for vendor funds based on the provisions of the agreements in place. Due to the complexity and diversity of the individual vendor agreements, the Company performs analyses and reviews historical trends throughout the year and confirms actual amounts with </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">select </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">vendors to ensure the amounts earned are appropriately recorded. Amounts accrued throughout the year could be impacted if actual purchase volumes differ from projected annual purchase volumes, especially in the case of programs that provide for increased funding when graduated purchase volumes are met.</font></p> <p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;margin-left:0px;">Derivative</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;">Financial Instruments</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> - The Company occasionally utilizes derivative financial instruments to manage certain business risks. However, the amounts were not material to the Company's consolidated financial statements in any of the years presented. The Company does not use derivative financial instruments for trading purposes.</font></p> <p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;margin-left:0px;">Credit Programs</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> - The majority of the Company's accounts receivable arises from sales of goods and services to </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">c</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">ommercial </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">b</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">usiness </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">c</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">ustomers. The Company has an agreement with </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">GE Money Bank</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> (GE) under which GE purchases at face value commercial business accounts receivable originated by the Company and services these accounts. This agreement </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">expires </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">in December 2016, unless terminated sooner by the parties. The Company accounts for these transfers as sales of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">the </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">accounts receivable. When the Company sells its commercial business accounts receivable, it retains certain interests in those receivables, including the funding of a loss reserve and its obligation related to GE's ongoing servicing of the receivables sold. Any gain or loss on the sale is determined based on the previous carrying amounts of the transferred assets allocated at fair value between the receivables sold and the interests retained. Fair value is based on the present value of expected future cash flows, taking into account the key assumptions of anticipated credit losses, payment rates, late fee rates, GE's servicing costs and the discount rate commensurate with the uncertainty involved. Due to the short-term nature of the receivables sold, changes to the key assumptions would not materially impact the recorded gain or loss on the sales of receivables or the fair value of the retained interests in the receivables.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">Total commercial business accounts receivable sold to GE were </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">$</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">1.8</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">billion in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2011</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">$</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">1.7</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">billion in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2010</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> and $</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">1.6</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">billion in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2009</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">. </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">T</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">he Company recognized losses</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">$</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">31</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> million </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">each </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2011, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2010</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> and</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2009 </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">on these </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">receivable </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">sales as SG&amp;A expense, which primarily relates to the fair value of the obligations incurred related to servicing costs that are remitted to GE monthly.

The Company bases these estimates on historical results and various other assumptions believed to be reasonable, all of which form the basis for making estimates concerning the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily available from other sources.

This reserve is based on management's current knowledge with respect to inventory levels, sales trends and historical experience. Management does not believe the Company's merchandise inventories are subject to significant risk of obsolescence in the near term, and management has the ability to adjust purchasing practices based on anticipated sales trends and general economic conditions. </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> However, changes in consumer purchasing patterns could result in the need for additional reserves.</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">The Company also records an inventory reserve for the estimated shrinkage between physical inventories. This reserve is based primarily on actual shrink results from previous physical inventories. Changes in the estimated shrink reserve may be necessary based on the timing and results of physical inventories.</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">The Company receives funds from vendors in the normal course of business, principally as a result of purchase volumes, sales, early payments or promotions of vendors' products, which generally do not represent the reimbursement of specific, incremental and identifiable costs incurred </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">by the Company </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">to sell the vendor's product. These funds are treated as a reduction in the cost of inventory as the amounts are accrued, and are recognized as a reduction of cost of sales when the inventory is sold. The Company develops accrual rates for vendor funds based on the provisions of the agreements in place. Due to the complexity and diversity of the individual vendor agreements, the Company performs analyses and reviews historical trends throughout the year and confirms actual amounts with </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">select </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">vendors to ensure the amounts earned are appropriately recorded. Amounts accrued throughout the year could be impacted if actual purchase volumes differ from projected annual purchase volumes, especially in the case of programs that provide for increased funding when graduated purchase volumes are met.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;margin-left:0px;">Derivative</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;">Financial Instruments</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> - The Company occasionally utilizes derivative financial instruments to manage certain business risks.

The Company has an agreement with </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">GE Money Bank</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> (GE) under which GE purchases at face value commercial business accounts receivable originated by the Company and services these accounts. This agreement </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">expires </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">in December 2016, unless terminated sooner by the parties. The Company accounts for these transfers as sales of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">the </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">accounts receivable. When the Company sells its commercial business accounts receivable, it retains certain interests in those receivables, including the funding of a loss reserve and its obligation related to GE's ongoing servicing of the receivables sold. Any gain or loss on the sale is determined based on the previous carrying amounts of the transferred assets allocated at fair value between the receivables sold and the interests retained. Fair value is based on the present value of expected future cash flows, taking into account the key assumptions of anticipated credit losses, payment rates, late fee rates, GE's servicing costs and the discount rate commensurate with the uncertainty involved. Due to the short-term nature of the receivables sold, changes to the key assumptions would not materially impact the recorded gain or loss on the sales of receivables or the fair value of the retained interests in the receivables.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">Total commercial business accounts receivable sold to GE were </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">$</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">1.8</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">billion in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2011</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">$</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">1.7</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">billion in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2010</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> and $</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">1.6</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">billion in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2009</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">. </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">T</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">he Company recognized losses</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">$</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">31</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> million </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">in </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">each </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">of </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2011, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2010</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> and</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">2009 </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">on these </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">receivable </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">sales as SG&amp;A expense, which primarily relates to the fair value of the obligations incurred related to servicing costs that are remitted to GE monthly.

The guidance expands the disclosure requirements around fair value measurements categorized in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and requires disclosure of the level in the fair value hierarchy of items that are not measured at fair value in the statement of financial position but whose fair value must be disclosed. It also clarifies and expands upon existing requirements for measurement of the fair value of financial assets and liabilities as well as instruments classified in shareholders' equity. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption of the guidance to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">In June 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that amends the presentation requirements for comprehensive income in financial statements. The guidance requires entities to report components of comprehensive income either as part of a single continuous statement of comprehensive income that would combine the components of net income and other comprehensive income, or in a separate, but consecutive, statement following the statement of income. Subsequently, in December, 2011, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">the FASB issued authoritative guidance that indefinitely defers certain provisions of the guidance issued in June 2011. The guidance defers the requirement to present reclassifications of other comprehensive income on the face of the income statement</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December&#160;15, 2011, and is to be applied retrospectively. The adoption of this guidance will impact the presentation of comprehensive income, but will not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">In September 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that amends the existing requirements for goodwill impairment testing. The guidance gives companies the option to make a qualitative evaluation about the likelihood of goodwill impairment at their annual assessment date before calculating the fair value of a reporting unit. Companies will be required to perform the two-step impairment test only if, based on the qualitative evaluation, it concludes that the fair value of a reporting unit is more likely than not less than its carrying value. Companies will continue to be required to determine qualitatively whether an interim goodwill impairment test is required. The guidance is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December&#160;15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of the guidance will impact the Company's process for determining if a goodwill impairment test is necessary, but will not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;font-weight:bold;margin-left:0px;">Segment Information</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;"> - The Company's home improvement retail </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">operations </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">represent a single operating segment based on the way the Company manages its business.

The guidance expands the disclosure requirements around fair value measurements categorized in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and requires disclosure of the level in the fair value hierarchy of items that are not measured at fair value in the statement of financial position but whose fair value must be disclosed. It also clarifies and expands upon existing requirements for measurement of the fair value of financial assets and liabilities as well as instruments classified in shareholders' equity. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption of the guidance to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">In June 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that amends the presentation requirements for comprehensive income in financial statements. The guidance requires entities to report components of comprehensive income either as part of a single continuous statement of comprehensive income that would combine the components of net income and other comprehensive income, or in a separate, but consecutive, statement following the statement of income. Subsequently, in December, 2011, </font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">the FASB issued authoritative guidance that indefinitely defers certain provisions of the guidance issued in June 2011. The guidance defers the requirement to present reclassifications of other comprehensive income on the face of the income statement</font><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;">. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December&#160;15, 2011, and is to be applied retrospectively. The adoption of this guidance will impact the presentation of comprehensive income, but will not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.</font></p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'>&#160;</p><p style='margin-top:0pt; margin-bottom:0pt'><font style="font-family:Times New Roman;font-size:11pt;margin-left:0px;">In September 2011, the FASB issued authoritative guidance that amends the existing requirements for goodwill impairment testing. The guidance gives companies the option to make a qualitative evaluation about the likelihood of goodwill impairment at their annual assessment date before calculating the fair value of a reporting unit. Companies will be required to perform the two-step impairment test only if, based on the qualitative evaluation, it concludes that the fair value of a reporting unit is more likely than not less than its carrying value. Companies will continue to be required to determine qualitatively whether an interim goodwill impairment test is required. The guidance is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December&#160;15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of the guidance will impact the Company's process for determining if a goodwill impairment test is necessary, but will not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.</font></p> Reclassifications - Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current classifications.
