PART I

Item 1.    Business

Overview

        We are a leading closeout retailer of upscale decorative home accessories, housewares, and famous-maker gifts in the United States. We opened our first store in 1974 and operated 852 stores in 43 states as of June 30, 2012. Our stores are generally open seven days a week and focus on periodic "sales events," that occur in each month except January and July, which historically have been weaker months for retailers. Our stores are normally closed for up to five days during the months of January and July as we conduct physical inventories at all of our stores. We purchase first quality, brand name merchandise at closeout pricing and, in turn, sell it at prices significantly below those generally charged by department stores and specialty and catalog retailers. We do not sell seconds, irregulars, refurbished or factory rejects.

        We believe that our well recognized, first quality brand name merchandise and value-based pricing have enabled us to establish and maintain strong customer loyalty. Our customers, who are predominantly women from middle to upper-income households, are brand savvy, value-conscious customers seeking quality products at discount pricing. While we offer our customers consistent merchandise categories, each sales event features limited quantities of new and appealing products within these categories, creating a "treasure hunt" atmosphere in our stores.

        We believe that our customers are attracted to our stores not by location, but by our advertising and direct or electronic mail programs that emphasize the limited quantities of first quality, brand name merchandise which we offer at attractive prices. This has allowed us to open our stores in secondary locations of major suburban markets, such as strip malls, near our middle and upper-income customers. We are generally able to obtain favorable lease terms because of our flexibility in site selection and our no-frills format, which allow us to use a wide variety of space configurations. Additionally, we offer selected items for sale at our retail website at www.tuesdaymorning.com.

Key Operating Strengths

        Our success is based on the following operating strengths:

Growth Strategy

        Our growth strategy is to continue to build on our position as a leading closeout retailer of upscale home furnishings, housewares, gifts and related items in the United States by:

Table of Contents

Industry Trends

        As a closeout retailer of first quality, brand name merchandise, we benefit from attractive characteristics in the closeout industry. Closeout merchandise is generally available to closeout retailers at low prices for a variety of reasons, including the inability of a manufacturer to sell merchandise through regular channels, the discontinuance of merchandise due to a style or color change, the cancellation of orders placed by other retailers and the termination of business by a manufacturer or wholesaler. Occasionally, the closeout retailer may be able to purchase closeout merchandise because a manufacturer has excess raw materials or production capacity. Typically, closeout retailers have lower merchandise costs, capital expenditures and operating costs, which allows for the sale of merchandise at prices lower than other retailers.

        In addition, we benefit from several trends in the retailing industry. "Just-in-time" inventory management and retailer consolidation have both resulted in a shift of inventory risk from retailers to manufacturers. In response to an increasingly competitive market, manufacturers continue to introduce new products and new packaging more frequently. We believe that these trends have helped make the closeout retailer an integral part of manufacturers' overall distribution strategies. As a result, we believe manufacturers are increasingly looking for larger, more sophisticated closeout retailers, such as ourselves, that can purchase larger and more varied merchandise and can control the distribution and advertising of specific products in order to minimize disruption to the manufacturers' traditional distribution channels.

Products

        We sell first quality, upscale home furnishings, housewares, gifts and related items. We do not sell seconds, irregulars, refurbished or factory rejects. Our merchandise primarily consists of lamps, rugs, furniture, kitchen accessories, small electronics, gourmet housewares, linens, luggage, bedroom and

6


Table of Contents

bathroom accessories, toys, pet products, stationary and silk plants as well as crystal, collectibles, silver serving pieces, men, women and children's apparel and accessories. We specialize in well-recognized, first quality, brand name merchandise, which has included, Viking and Calphalon cookware, Breville, KitchenAid and Cuisinart appliances, Peacock Alley and Sferra linens, Michael Kors bath towels, Travel Pro luggage, Reed and Barton flatware, Lenox and Denby tabletop, Waterford and Riedel crystal, Steinbach and Hummel collectibles, Madame Alexander dolls, Royal Doulton and Wedgwood china and giftware, Couristan rugs and many others.

        We differ from discount retailers in that we do not stock continuing lines of merchandise. Because we offer a continuity of merchandise categories with ever-changing individual product offerings, we provide our customers a higher proportion of new merchandise items than general merchandisers. We are continually looking to add new complementary merchandise categories that appeal to our customers.

Purchasing

        We provide an outlet for manufactures and other sources looking for effective ways to reduce excess inventory resulting from order cancellations by retailers, manufacturing overruns and excess capacity. Since our inception, we have not experienced any significant difficulty in obtaining first quality, brand name closeout merchandise in adequate volumes and at attractive prices. We use a mix of domestic and international vendors. We make opportunistic purchases at substantial discounts. We buy merchandise direct from manufacturers as well as utilizing other sources such as liquidators and bankruptcies. We pay our vendors timely and generally do not request special consideration for markdowns, advertising or returns. Our distribution processes allow us to stock merchandise in our stores more quickly, which increases our purchasing flexibility. We are positioned and able to take advantage of more, and often larger, buying opportunities as well as offer an enhanced selection of products to our customers. During fiscal 2012, our top ten vendors accounted for approximately 10.9% of total purchases, with no single vendor accounting for more than 1.6% of total purchases.

Pricing

        Our pricing policy is to sell all merchandise significantly below the retail prices generally charged by department and specialty stores. Prices are determined centrally and are uniform at all of our stores. Once a price is determined for a particular item, labels displaying three-tiered pricing are affixed to the product. A typical price tag displays a competitor's "regular" price, a competitor's "sale" price and our closeout price. Our management and buyers verify retail prices by reviewing prices published in advertisements and catalogues and manufacturers' suggested retail price lists and by visiting department or specialty stores selling similar merchandise. Our information systems provide daily sales and inventory information, which enables us to mark down unsold merchandise on a timely and periodic basis as dictated by sales volumes and incoming purchases, thereby effectively managing our inventory levels.

Advertising

        We plan and implement an advertising program for each sales event. Prior to each sales event, we initiate a direct mailing or email to customers on our mailing list, which consists of customers who have previously visited our stores and requested mailings or signed up through our e-commerce site. These direct mailings alert customers to the opening of a sales event and the merchandise and prices we offer. We also communicate with customers by advertising from time to time in local newspapers in each of our markets along with information available on our e-commerce sales website at www.tuesdaymorning.com.

        Site Selection.    We continually evaluate our current store base regarding potential enhancement or relocation of our store locations. As a result of this ongoing evaluation, we have and intend to continue to pursue attractive relocation opportunities in our existing store base, close certain stores by allowing leases to expire for underperforming stores or where alternative locations in similar trade areas are not available at acceptable lease rates, and open new stores. For both new stores and relocations, we negotiate for upgraded sites. We believe that this strategy will better position us for the long-term while still maintaining a low cost per square foot in rent expense. To that end, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 we plan to keep our overall store count constant, but focus our efforts on the relocation of our existing store locations as profitable opportunities present themselves. We expect our new stores to be similar in appearance and operation to our existing stores and do not anticipate difficulty in identifying suitable additional store locations in areas with our target customer demographics. As we continue our relocation strategy, we expect to incur minimal change in the cost of real estate for those locations.

        We believe that our customers are attracted to our stores by our advertising, direct mail and email programs that emphasize the limited quantities of first quality, brand name merchandise that we offer at attractive prices, rather than by location. This has allowed us to open our stores in secondary locations of major suburban markets, such as strip malls, near our middle and upper-income customers. We are able to obtain favorable lease terms because of our flexibility in site selection and our no-frills format, which allow us to effectively use a wide variety of space configurations. As a result of this opportunistic approach to site selection, we believe our real estate costs are lower than many traditional retailers.

        Store Leases.    Except for one store adjacent to our distribution center, we lease our store locations under non-cancelable operating leases that include optional renewal periods. Some of our leases also provide for contingent rent based upon store sales exceeding stipulated amounts.

        Our store leases typically include "kick clauses," which allow us, at our option, to exit the lease 24 to 36 months after entering into the lease if sales at the store do not reach a stipulated amount stated in the lease. These kick clauses, when combined with our inexpensive and portable store fixtures, provide us with flexibility in opening new stores and relocating existing stores by allowing us to quickly and cost-effectively vacate a site that does not meet our sales expectations. As a result, we generally do not operate locations with continued store-level operating losses where our leases provide us this flexibility.

        Store Layout.    Our opportunistic site selection and "no-frills" approach to presenting merchandise allow us to use a wide variety of space configurations. The size of our stores generally ranges from 5,000 to 31,800 square feet and averages approximately 10,200 square feet as of June 30, 2012. We have designed our stores to be functional, with less emphasis placed upon fixtures and leasehold aesthetics. We display all merchandise at each store by type and size on racks or counters, and we maintain minimum inventory in stockrooms.

        Store Operations.    Our stores are generally open seven days a week, excluding certain holidays. Our stores, or a portion thereof, are closed for up to five days during the months of January and July as we conduct physical inventories at all store locations. We continue to maintain the frequency of shipments of merchandise during sales events that occur once each month except January and July, which results in improved efficiency of receiving and restocking activities at our stores. We attempt to align our part-time associates' labor hours in the stores closely with current customer demand.

        Store Management.    Each store has a manager who is responsible for recruiting, training and supervising store personnel and assuring that the store is managed in accordance with our established guidelines and procedures. Store managers are full-time employees. Our store managers are supported by regional field management and zone level support. Store managers are responsible for reviewing store inventory and ensuring their store is continually stocked for sales event and non-sales event periods. The store manager is assisted primarily by part-time employees, with few exceptions, who generally serve as assistant managers, cashiers, and help with merchandise stocking efforts. We believe that on-going training is a critical component to the success of our store management. Each store manager receives training beginning with new manager training upon being hired or promoted, as well as periodic attendance at one or more training sessions held in Dallas, Texas.

        Members of our management visit selected stores during sales event and non-sales event periods to review inventory levels and presentation, personnel performance, expense controls, security and adherence to our policies and procedures. In addition, regional and zone field managers periodically meet with senior management to review store policies and to discuss purchasing, merchandising and advertising strategies.

Distribution

        An important aspect of our model involves the ability to process, sort and distribute inventory efficiently. Our distribution center, buying, and planning and allocation departments work closely together to ensure that inventory flow is efficient and effective. The majority of merchandise is received, inspected, counted, ticketed and designated for individual stores at our central distribution center in the Dallas, Texas metropolitan area. As a general rule, we carry similar products in each of our stores, but the amount of inventory each store is allocated varies depending upon size, location and sales projections for that store. Consistent with our sales event strategy, we ship most merchandise to our stores within a few weeks of its arrival at our distribution center. We generally do not replenish

9


Table of Contents

specific merchandise during a sales event; though we may ship new and different merchandise to stores throughout a sales event.

        We make inventory deliveries to the majority of our stores 44 to 50 times per year on average, which allows us to significantly reduce the amount of inventory stored at our distribution center and maintain consistent in-store inventory levels. This number of shipments also allows our stores to process shipments effectively and keep their shelves stocked with new merchandise during sales events and non-sales event periods. We use a bar-code locator system to track inventory from the time it is received until it is shipped to our stores. This system allows us to locate, price, sort and ship merchandise efficiently from our central distribution center.

        Online customer orders are shipped either from our e-commerce fulfillment facility, which is located near our other distribution facilities in Dallas, Texas, or directly to the customer from our supplier. We use a bar-code locator system to track inventory from the time it is received until it is shipped to our customers. This system allows us to locate, price, sort and ship merchandise efficiently from our e-commerce fulfillment center.

Management Information Systems

        We have invested significant resources in computers, bar code scanners and radio frequency terminals, software programming and related equipment, technology and training, and we intend to continue updating these systems as necessary. We also have a company-wide local area network computer system, which includes purchase order processing, imports, transportation, distribution, point-of-sale and financial systems that enables us to efficiently control and process our inventory.

        At the store level, we have computer-based registers that capture daily sales data at the stock-keeping unit, or "SKU" level. Sales and inventory information, open to buy and other operational data is distributed daily to designated levels of management and to the individuals or groups who have responsibility for specific aspects of the business.

Competition

        We believe the principal factors by which we compete are price and product offering. We believe we compete effectively by pricing the merchandise we sell below department and specialty store prices and by offering a broad assortment of high-end, first quality, brand name merchandise. We currently compete against a diverse group of retailers, including department and discount stores, specialty, e-commerce and catalog retailers and mass merchants, which sell, among other products, home furnishings, housewares and related products. We also compete in particular markets with a substantial number of retailers that specialize in one or more types of home furnishing products that we sell. Some of these competitors have substantially greater financial resources that may, among other things, increase their ability to purchase inventory at lower costs or to initiate and sustain aggressive price competition.

        We are distinguishable from our competitors in several respects. Unlike our competitors, which primarily offer continuing lines of merchandise, we offer changing lines of merchandise depending on availability at value driven prices. Most retailers in the closeout retailing industry are either general merchandisers or focus on apparel, while our current operations focus primarily on upscale home furnishings, housewares, gifts and related items. In addition, we believe most closeout retailers focus on lower and middle-income consumers, while we generally cater to middle and upper-income customers. Finally, our business model continues to be focused on ten major sales events, which are promoted and advertised to our customers through direct mailings, emails and, from time to time, radio and television advertising. We believe that our sales events create a sense of urgency and excitement on the part of our customers because they know that the availability of merchandise during a sales event is limited.

Seasonality

        Our business is subject to seasonality, with a higher level of our net sales and operating income generated during the quarter ended December 31, which includes the holiday shopping season. Net sales in the quarters ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009 accounted for approximately 34%, 34%, and 35%, respectively, of our annual net sales for such fiscal years. Operating income for the quarters ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009, accounted for approximately 343%, 157%, and 150%, respectively, of our annual operating income for such fiscal years.

Employees

        As of June 30, 2012, we employed approximately 1,900 persons on a full-time basis and approximately 6,500 on a part-time basis. Our employees are not represented by any labor unions. We have not experienced any work stoppage due to labor disagreements, and we believe that our employee relations are strong.

        The tradename "Tuesday Morning" is material to our business. We have registered the name "Tuesday Morning" as a service mark with the United States Patent and Trademark office. We have also registered other trademarks including "Closing Time®" and "eTreasures®" and maintain an e-commerce sales website at www.tuesdaymorning.com.

Item 1A.    Risk Factors

        Our business is subject to significant risks. The risks and uncertainties described below and the other information in this Form 10-K, including our consolidated financial statements and the notes to those statements, should be carefully considered. The risks and uncertainties described below may not be the only ones facing us. Additional risks and uncertainties that we do not presently know about or that we currently believe are immaterial may also affect our business operations. If any of the events described below actually occur, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be adversely affected in a material way.


Risks Related to Our Business

Current economic conditions may affect consumer spending and could significantly harm our business.

        The success of our business depends to a significant extent upon the level of consumer spending. A number of factors beyond our control affect the level of consumer spending on merchandise that we offer, including, among other things: general economic and industry conditions; unemployment; the housing market; deterioration in consumer confidence; crude oil prices that affect gasoline and diesel fuel, as well as, increases in other fuels used to support utilities; food prices and their effect on consumer discretionary spending; efforts by our customers to reduce personnel debt levels; interest rates; fluctuations in the financial markets; tax rates and policies; war, terrorism and other hostilities; and consumer confidence in future economic conditions.

        The merchandise we sell generally consists of discretionary items. Reduced consumer confidence and spending cut backs may result in reduced demand for our merchandise, including discretionary items, and may force us to take significant inventory markdowns. Reduced demand also may require increased selling and promotional expenses. Adverse economic conditions and any related decrease in consumer demand for our merchandise could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

We face a number of risks in opening new stores and relocating or expanding existing stores.

        As part of our growth strategy, we intend to pursue relocation opportunities to improve our existing store base as well as open new stores that will offset the closing of lower performing stores as they come up for renewal. For both new stores and relocations, we negotiate for upgraded sites. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 we plan to increase the chain-wide square footage by approximately 1% - 2% if we locate attractive opportunities to do so. However, we cannot assure that we will be able to achieve our relocation goals or that we will be able to operate any new or relocated stores profitably. Further, we cannot assure that any new or relocated store will achieve similar operating results to those of our existing stores or that new, relocated or expanded stores opened in markets in which we operate will not have a material adverse effect on the revenues and profitability of our existing store base. The success of our planned expansion will be dependent upon numerous factors, many of which are beyond our control, including the following: the ability of our personnel to adequately analyze and identify suitable markets and individual store sites within those markets; the competition for suitable store sites; our ability to negotiate favorable lease terms with landlords; our ability to obtain governmental and other third-party consents, permits and licenses needed to operate our stores; the availability of employees to staff new stores and our ability to hire, train, motivate and retain store personnel; the availability of adequate management and financial resources to properly manage a large volume of stores; our ability to adapt our distribution and other operational and management systems to a changing network of stores; and our ability to attract customers and generate sales sufficient to operate new, relocated or expanded stores profitably.

        We opened stores in new markets during the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, and intend to enter into additional new markets in fiscal 2013 and beyond. These markets may have

12


Table of Contents

different competitive conditions, consumer trends and discretionary spending patterns than our existing markets, which may cause our new stores in these markets to be less successful than stores in our existing markets.

Our business is intensely competitive and stronger competition could have a material adverse effect on us.

        The retail home furnishings and housewares industry is intensely competitive. As a closeout retailer of home furnishings and housewares, we currently compete against a diverse group of retailers, including department and discount stores, specialty and e-commerce retailers and mass merchants, which sell, among other products, home furnishing and houseware products similar and often identical to those we sell. We also compete in particular markets with a substantial number of retailers that specialize in one or more types of home furnishing and houseware products that we sell. Many of these competitors have substantially greater financial resources that may allow them to initiate and sustain aggressive price competition. A number of different competitive factors could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition, including: increased operational efficiencies of competitors; competitive pricing strategies, including deep discount pricing by a broad range of retailers during periods of poor consumer confidence or economic uncertainty; continued and prolonged promotional activity by competitors; liquidation sales by a number of our competitors who have filed or will file for bankruptcy; expansion by existing competitors; entry by new competitors into markets in which we currently operate; and adoption by existing competitors of innovative store formats or retail sales methods.

        We cannot assure that we will be able to continue to compete successfully with our existing or new competitors, or that prolonged periods of deep discount pricing by our competitors will not materially harm our business. We compete for customers, associates, locations, merchandise, services and other important aspects of our business with many other local, regional, national and international retailers. We also face competition from alternative retail distribution channels such as catalogues and, increasingly, e-commerce websites. Changes in the merchandising, pricing and promotional activities of those competitors, and in the retail industry, in general, may adversely affect our performance.

Our operating results depend on our website, network infrastructure and transaction-processing systems. Capacity constraints or system failures would harm our business, prospects, results of operations and financial condition.

        Any system interruptions that result in the reduced performance of our transaction systems, including our point of sale systems, merchandising systems, or website, could reduce our transaction volume and the attractiveness of the services that we provide to customers and could harm our business, prospects, operating results and financial condition.

        We use internally developed systems for our website and certain aspects of transaction processing, including personalization databases utilized for internal analytics, recommendations and order verifications. We have experienced periodic systems interruptions due to server failure and power failure, which we believe will continue to occur from time to time. If the volume of traffic on our website or the number of purchases made by customers increases substantially, we will need to further expand and upgrade our technology, transaction processing systems and network infrastructure. We have experienced and expect to continue to experience temporary capacity constraints due to sharply increased traffic during sales or other promotions and during the holiday shopping season. Capacity constraints can cause unanticipated system disruptions, slower response times, delayed page presentation, degradation in levels of customer service, impaired quality and delays in reporting accurate financial information.

        Our transaction processing systems and network infrastructure may be unable to accommodate increases in traffic in the future. We may be unable to project accurately the rate or timing of traffic

Table of Contents

increases or successfully upgrade our systems and infrastructure to accommodate future traffic levels on our website. In addition, we may be unable to upgrade and expand our transaction processing systems in an effective and timely manner or to integrate any newly developed or purchased functionality within our existing systems. Any such difficulties with our transaction processing systems or other difficulties upgrading, expanding or integrating various aspects of our systems may cause unanticipated system disruptions, slower response times, and degradation in levels of customer service, additional expense, impaired quality and speed of order fulfillment or delays in reporting accurate financial information.

Failure to adequately maintain security and prevent unauthorized access to electronic and other confidential information could adversely affect our financial condition and operating results

        We are heavily dependent upon automated technology processes. Third parties that can penetrate our network security or otherwise misappropriate our customers' personal information or credit card information could subject us to certain negative repercussions. These repercussions could negatively impact our competitive advantage, our customers' confidence level, and subject us to potential litigation and fines/penalties. While we remain in compliance with Payment Card Industry requirements, we cannot assure you that our security measures will prevent security breaches or that failure to prevent such security breaches will not harm our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.

Compromises of our data security could materially harm our reputation and business.

        In the ordinary course of our business, we collect and store certain personal information from individuals, such as our customers and associates, and we process customer payment card and check information. We may suffer unauthorized intrusions into portions of our computer system that process and store information related to customer transactions. We have taken steps designed to strengthen the security of our computer system and protocols and have instituted an ongoing program with respect to data security. Nevertheless, there can be no assurance that we will not suffer a data compromise. We rely on commercially available systems, software, tools and monitoring to provide security for processing, transmission and storage of confidential information. Further, the systems currently used for transmission and approval of payment card transactions, and the technology utilized in payment cards themselves, all of which can put payment card data at risk, are determined and controlled by the payment card industry, not by us. This is also true for check information and approval. Computer hackers may attempt to penetrate our computer system and, if successful, misappropriate personal information, payment card or check information or confidential Company business information. In addition, a Company associate, contractor or other third party with whom we do business may attempt to circumvent our security measures in order to obtain such information and inadvertently cause a breach involving such information. Advances in computer and software capabilities and encryption technology, new tools and other developments may increase the risk of such a breach. Any such compromise of our data security and loss of personal or business information could disrupt our operations, damage our reputation and customers' willingness to shop in our stores, violate applicable laws, regulations, orders and agreements, and subject us to additional costs and liabilities which could be material.

We must continuously attract buying opportunities for closeout merchandise and anticipate consumer demand as closeout merchandise becomes available.

        By its nature, specific closeout merchandise items are available from manufacturers or vendors generally on a non-recurring basis. As a result, we do not have long-term contracts with our vendors for supply, pricing or access to products, but make individual purchase decisions, which are often for large quantities. Due to economic uncertainties, some of our manufacturers and suppliers may cease operations or may otherwise become unable to continue supplying closeout merchandise on terms

14


Table of Contents

acceptable to us. We further cannot assure that manufacturers or vendors will continue to make closeout merchandise available to us in quantities acceptable to us or that our buyers will continue to identify and take advantage of appropriate buying opportunities. In addition, if we misjudge consumer demand for products, we may significantly overstock unpopular products and be forced to take significant markdowns and miss opportunities to sell more popular products. An inability to acquire suitable merchandise in the future or to accurately anticipate consumer demand for such merchandise would have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

The loss of, or disruption in the operations of, our centralized distribution center would have a material adverse effect on our business and operations.

        With few exceptions, all inventory is shipped directly from suppliers to our centralized distribution center in the Dallas, Texas metropolitan area, where the inventory is then processed, sorted and shipped to our stores or shipped directly to our customers who purchase merchandise from our e-commerce website. We depend in large part on the orderly operation of this receiving and distribution process, which depends, in turn, on adherence to shipping schedules and effective management of the distribution center. We cannot assure that we have anticipated all of the changing demands which our expanding operations will impose on our receiving and distribution system or that events beyond our control, such as disruptions in operations due to fire or other catastrophic events, labor disagreements or shipping problems, will not result in delays in the delivery of merchandise to our stores. We also cannot assure that our insurance will be sufficient, or that insurance proceeds will be timely paid to us, in the event our distribution center is shut down for any reason.

Our freight costs and thus our cost of goods sold are impacted by changes in fuel prices.

        Our freight cost is impacted by changes in fuel prices through surcharges. Fuel prices and surcharges affect freight cost both on inbound freight from vendors to our distribution center and outbound freight from our distribution center to our stores. In addition, the U.S. government requires drivers of over-the-road trucks to take certain rest periods which reduce the available amount of time they can drive during a 24-hour period. High fuel prices or surcharges, as well as stringent driver regulations, may increase freight costs and thereby increase our cost of goods sold.

The loss or departure of one or more members of our senior management or other key employees could have a material adverse effect on our business.

        Our future performance will depend in large part upon the efforts and abilities of our senior management and our other key employees, including our buyers. The loss of service of these persons could have a material adverse effect on our business and future prospects. We do not maintain key person life insurance for our senior management. We only have an employment agreement with Mr. Michael Marchetti, our Interim Chief Executive Officer, President and Chief Operating Officer, and have no such agreements with any other members of senior management or our buyers.

If we are not able to generate strong cash flows from our operations, we will not be able to support capital expansion, operations and debt repayment.

        Our business is dependent upon our operations generating strong cash flows to support capital expansion requirements and general operating activities. Our inability to continue to generate sufficient cash flows to support these activities or the lack of availability of financing in adequate amounts and on appropriate terms could adversely affect our financial performance.

An increase in the cost or a disruption in the flow of our imported products may significantly decrease our sales and profits.

        Merchandise manufactured and imported from overseas represents the majority of our total product purchases acquired both domestically and internationally. A disruption in the shipping of imported merchandise or an increase in the cost of those products may significantly decrease our sales and profits. In addition, if imported merchandise becomes more expensive or unavailable, the transition to alternative sources may not occur in time to meet our demands. Products from alternative sources may also be of lesser quality and more expensive than those we currently import. Risks associated with our reliance on imported products include disruptions in the shipping and importation or increases in the costs of imported products because of factors such as: raw material shortages; work stoppages; strikes and political unrest; problems with oceanic shipping, including shipping container shortages; increased customs inspections of import shipments or other factors causing delays in shipments; economic crises; international disputes and wars; loss of "most favored nation" trading status by the United States in relation to a particular foreign country; import duties; import quotas and other trade sanctions; and increases in shipping rates.

        The products we buy abroad are sometimes priced in foreign currencies and, therefore, we are affected by fluctuating exchange rates. In the past, we have entered into foreign currency exchange contracts with major financial institutions to hedge these fluctuations. We might not be able to successfully protect ourselves in the future against currency rate fluctuations, and our financial performance could suffer as a result. You should read "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation" and "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" for more information about our foreign currency exchange rate exposure and hedging activities.

Our success depends upon our marketing, advertising and promotional efforts. If we are unable to implement them successfully, or if our competitors are more effective than we are, our revenue may be adversely affected.

        We use marketing and promotional programs to attract customers to our stores and to encourage purchases by our customers. We use various media for our promotional efforts, including print, television, database marketing, email, direct marketing, and other electronic communications such as online social networks. If we fail to choose the appropriate medium for our efforts, or fail to implement and execute new marketing opportunities, our competitors may be able to attract some of our customers and cause them to decrease purchases from us and increase purchases elsewhere, which would negatively impact our revenues. Changes in the amount and degree of promotional intensity or merchandising strategy by our competitors could cause us to have difficulties in retaining existing customers and attracting new customers.

If we do not attract and retain quality sales, distribution center and other associates in large numbers, as well as, experienced buying and management personnel, our performance could be adversely affected.

        Our performance is dependent on recruiting, developing, training and retaining quality sales, distribution center and other associates in large numbers, as well as, experienced buying and management personnel. Many of our associates are in entry level or part-time positions with historically high rates of turnover. Our ability to meet our labor needs while controlling costs is subject to external factors, such as unemployment levels, prevailing wage rates, minimum wage legislation and changing demographics. In the event of increasing wage rates, if we do not increase our wages competitively, our customer service could suffer because of a declining quality of our workforce, or our earnings would decrease if we increase our wage rates. Changes that adversely impact our ability to attract and retain quality associates and management personnel could adversely affect our performance.

Our results of operations are subject to seasonal and quarterly fluctuations, which could have a material adverse effect on our operating results or the market price of our common stock.

        Our business is subject to seasonality with a higher level of net sales and operating income generated during the quarter ended December 31, which includes the holiday shopping season. Net sales in the quarters ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009, accounted for approximately 34%, 34%, and 35%, respectively, of our annual net sales for such years. Operating income for the quarters ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009 accounted for approximately 343%, 157%, and 150%, respectively, of our annual operating income for such years. For more information about our seasonality, please read "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation—Quarterly Results and Seasonality." Because a significant percentage of our net sales and operating income are generated in the quarter ending December 31, we have limited ability to compensate for shortfalls in December quarter sales or earnings by changes in our operations or strategies in other quarters. A significant shortfall in results for the quarter ending December 31 of any year could have a material adverse effect on our annual results of operations and on the market price of our common stock. Our quarterly results of operations may also fluctuate significantly based on such factors as: the timing of new store openings; the amount of net sales contributed by new and existing stores; the success of our store expansion and relocation program; the timing of certain holidays and sales events; changes in our merchandise mix; general economic, industry and weather conditions that affect consumer spending; and actions of competitors, including promotional activity.

A failure to grow or maintain our comparable store sales may adversely affect our results of operations.

        Our comparable store sales results have fluctuated in the past, and we believe such fluctuations may continue given the current housing market and uncertainty of consumer spending. Our comparable store sales decreased 3.1% for fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, decreased 1.2% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, and increased 2.2% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. The unpredictability of our comparable store sales may cause our revenue and results of operations to vary from quarter to quarter, and an unanticipated decline in revenues or operating income may cause our stock price to fluctuate significantly. A failure to grow or maintain our comparable store sales results could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.

        A number of factors have historically affected, and will continue to affect, our comparable store sales results, including: competition; general regional and national economic conditions; inclement weather; consumer trends, such as less spending due the impact of high unemployment rates; changes in our merchandise mix; our ability to distribute merchandise efficiently to our stores; timing and type of sales events, promotional activities or other advertising; new merchandise introductions; and our ability to execute our business strategy effectively.


Risks Related to Our Common Stock

Our certificate of incorporation, and bylaws and Delaware law contain provisions that could make it more difficult for a third party to acquire us without the consent of our board of directors.

        Provisions in our certificate of incorporation and bylaws will have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control or changes in our management. These provisions include the following: the ability of our Board of Directors to issue shares of our common stock and preferred stock without stockholder approval (subject to applicable NASDAQ requirements); a requirement that stockholder meetings may only be called by our President and Chief Executive Officer, the Chairman of the Board or at the written request of a majority of the directors then in office and not our stockholders; a prohibition of cumulative voting in the election of directors, which would otherwise allow less than a majority of stockholders to elect director candidates; the ability of our Board of Directors to make, alter or repeal our bylaws without further stockholder approval; and the requirement for advance

notice for nominations for directors to our Board of Directors and for proposing matters that can be acted upon by stockholders at stockholder meetings.

Because we do not presently have plans to pay dividends on our common stock, stockholders must look solely to appreciation of our common stock to realize a gain on their investment.

        On February 1, 2008, our Board of Directors voted to terminate the declaration of an annual cash dividend. The Board of Directors will consider the full range of alternatives with regard to the use of any excess cash flow in the future. Our future dividend policy is within the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend upon various factors, including our business, financial condition, results of operations, capital requirements and investment opportunities. Accordingly, stockholders must look solely to appreciation of our common stock to realize a gain on their investment. This appreciation may not occur.

The price of our common stock has fluctuated substantially over the past several years and may continue to fluctuate substantially in the future.

        From June 30, 2011 to June 30, 2012, the trading price of our common stock ranged from a low of $3.05 per share to a high of $4.91 per share. We expect our stock to continue to be subject to fluctuations as a result of a variety of factors, including factors beyond our control, which have been included throughout this Annual Report on Form 10-K. We may fail to meet the expectations of our stockholders or securities analysts at some time in the future, and our stock price could decline as a result.

Item 1B.    Unresolved Staff Comments

Item 2.    Properties

        Stores.    We lease all of our stores from unaffiliated third parties normally through non-cancelable leases, except one company-owned store located adjacent to our distribution facility. At June 30, 2012, the remaining terms of the majority of our store leases range from six months to five years and only 3.3% of our store leases have remaining terms greater than five years. The average initial term of a store lease is approximately five years with options available for renewal. We intend to continue to lease all of our new stores from unaffiliated third parties. Leases may contain renewal clauses, which are often executed, and may contain additional terms regarding percentage of rent payments. Our store leases typically include "kick clauses," which allow us, at our option, to exit the lease 24 to 36 months after entering the lease if sales at the store do not reach a stipulated amount in the lease.

        Distribution Facilities and Corporate Headquarters.    We own approximately 1,390,770 square feet of distribution facilities and a 104,675 square foot building which houses our corporate office in Dallas, Texas.

        We lease our e-commerce fulfillment center of approximately 59,000 square feet, which expires in April of 2014. Additionally, we have leases on three parcels of land of approximately 444,000 square feet, two of which are for trailer storage and the third parcel is for a 30,000 square foot building. The leases for trailer storage expire in February 2014 and December 2023 and the lease for the third parcel and building expires in February 2016. We believe our current distribution facilities are adequate to meet our requirements for the next several years. We may, however, need to acquire or lease additional warehouse space in approximately three to four years to accommodate our distribution requirements as our store base grows.

Item 3.    Legal Proceedings

        During 2001 and 2002, we were named as a defendant in three complaints filed in the Superior Court of California in and for the County of Los Angeles. The plaintiffs sought to certify a statewide class made up of some of our current and former employees, which they claim are owed compensation for overtime wages, penalties and interest. The plaintiffs also sought attorney's fees and costs. In October 2003, we entered into a settlement agreement with a sub-class of these plaintiffs consisting of managers-in-training and management trainees which was paid in November 2005 with no material impact to our financial statements. A store manager class was certified. However, in August 2008, our motion for de-certification of the class of store managers was granted, thereby dismissing their class action claim. The California Court of Appeals upheld the trial court's de-certification order and the California Supreme Court has declined to review that decision. We settled the individual claims of two plaintiffs in the lawsuit with no material impact on our financial statements. In addition, approximately 75 individual plaintiffs initially chose to pursue their claims individually and filed separate lawsuits against us alleging overtime violations. In May 2012, the company entered into a settlement and release agreement with the remaining plaintiffs to dismiss all pending lawsuits in the aggregate amount of $463,000, which includes all attorney fees and past decisions, and will release the company from any past manager litigation.

        A similar lawsuit, which also alleges claims concerning meal and rest periods, was filed in Orange County, California in 2004, by managers, managers-in-training and assistant managers, and an amended complaint was filed in July 2007. In December 2008, the four plaintiffs abandoned their class action claim and have elected to pursue their individual claims as well as claims under California's Private Attorney General Act with respect to such allegations. The Court has found in our favor on all claims and a final judgment has been entered. The plaintiffs have chosen not to pursue an appeal. A companion lawsuit alleging the same claims was filed in Orange County Superior Court in December 2008 on behalf of approximately thirty-four additional individual plaintiffs. This lawsuit includes a claim under California's Private Attorney General Act. Of the 34 plaintiffs, we have settled 11 cases representing the store manager plaintiffs for approximately, $185,000, including all attorney fees. Trial dates have been set for September 2012 for the remaining cases and settlement negotiations are ongoing.

        In December 2008, a class action lawsuit was filed by hourly, non-exempt employees in the Superior Court of California in and for the County of Los Angeles, alleging claims covering meal and rest period violations. The parties are presently conducting discovery. The court has certified the class on a limited issue relating to the use of on-duty meal period agreements.

        In July 2009, a lawsuit alleging failure to pay overtime compensation was filed in Alabama by a former store manager. The plaintiff sought to certify a class action made up current and former store managers. In fiscal 2010, we filed a request with the court to deny this motion. The court has not ruled, and no trial date has been set.

        In July 2012, a discrimination claim was filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by our former CEO. The Company believes this charge is without merit and intends to vigorously defend this matter.

        We intend to vigorously defend all pending actions. We do not believe these or any other legal proceedings pending or threatened against us would have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

        The information contained in Item 12 of this Form 10-K is incorporated herein by reference.

Repurchases of Common Equity

        On August 22, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors adopted a share repurchase program pursuant to which the Company is authorized to repurchase from time to time shares of Common Stock, up to a maximum of $5.0 million in aggregate purchase price for all such shares (the "Repurchase Program"). On January 20, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors increased the authorization for stock repurchases under the Repurchase Program from $5.0 million to a maximum of $10.0 million. The Repurchase Program does not have an expiration date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The Board will evaluate the Repurchase Program each year and there can be no assurances as to the number of shares of Common Stock the Company will repurchase. During the twelve month period ended June 30, 2012, 1,714,867 shares were repurchased under the Repurchase Program at an average cost of $3.52 per share and for a total cost (excluding commissions) of approximately $6.1 million. All of such shares were purchased by the Company in open-market transactions.

Item 7.    Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation

        The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with "Selected Financial Data" and our consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this Form 10-K.

Overview

Table of Contents

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

        Management's Discussion and Analysis is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of certain assets, liabilities, sales and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On a recurring basis, we evaluate our significant estimates which are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

        We believe the following critical accounting policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements.

        Inventory—Our inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market using the retail inventory method for store inventory and the specific identification method for warehouse inventory. Amounts are removed from inventory based on the retail inventory method which applies a cost-to-retail ratio to our various retail deductions such as sales, markdowns and shrink, to arrive at our cost of sales. Buying, distribution, freight and certain other costs are capitalized as part of inventory and are expensed as cost of sales as the related inventory is sold. The retail inventory method, which is used by a number of our competitors, involves management estimates with regard to items such as markdowns. Such estimates may significantly impact the ending inventory valuation at cost as well as the amount of gross margin recognized.

        We capitalize into inventory all merchandise costs and certain costs incurred to purchase, distribute and deliver merchandise to our stores in order to more accurately match the cost of merchandise with the timing of its sale. These costs are included in cost of sales when the merchandise is sold. Other cost of sales components include merchandise markdowns, shrink and damages, which are expensed as they are incurred.

Table of Contents

        We conduct full physical inventories at all stores at June 30 and December 31 to measure quantities on hand and make appropriate adjustments to our financial statements. During periods for which physical observations do not occur, we utilize an estimate for recording shrinkage reserves based on our historical experience from the results of our physical inventories. This estimate may require a favorable or unfavorable adjustment to actual results to the extent that our subsequent actual physical inventories yield a different result. Thus, the difference between actual and estimated amounts may cause fluctuations in the quarters ending in March and September. Since we conduct physical inventory counts twice a year, the subjective nature of our shrink percentage is reduced and our exposure to the risk of a significant error is minimized. In addition, we have loss-prevention programs that we believe minimize shrinkage. Although inventory shrinkage rates have not fluctuated significantly in recent years, if the actual rates were to differ from our estimates, then revisions to the inventory shrinkage expense could be required.

        Inventory is the largest asset on our balance sheet and represented approximately 67%, 70%, and 68% of total assets at June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively. Inventory increased 0.5%, or $1.3 million, from June 30, 2011 to June 30, 2012. Inventory increased 10.5%, or $25.2 million, from June 30, 2010 to June 30, 2011, primarily due to opportunistic purchases made in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 in addition to a shortfall in expected fourth quarter sales. On a per store basis, inventory increased 1.5% from June 30, 2011 to June 30, 2012 and increased 9.4% from June 30, 2010 to June 30, 2011.

        Markdowns—We have used markdowns to promote the effective and timely sale of merchandise that allows us to consistently provide fresher merchandise to our customers. We also utilize markdowns coupled with promotional events to drive traffic and stimulate sales during non-sales event periods. Markdowns may be temporary or permanent. Temporary markdowns are for a designated period of time with markdowns recorded based on quantities sold during the period. Permanent markdowns may vary throughout the quarter or year in timing with higher markdowns traditionally recorded in the quarters ended June 30 and December 31 due primarily to seasonal merchandise.

        Permanent markdowns are charged to cost of sales immediately based on the total quantities on-hand in the stores. We review all inventory each quarter to ensure all necessary pricing actions are taken to adequately value our inventory at the lower of cost or market through the retail inventory method. These actions which involve actual or planned permanent markdowns are considered by management to be the appropriate prices to stimulate demand for the merchandise. In addition to regularly reviewing inventory levels to identify slow-moving merchandise, management also considers current and anticipated demand, customer preferences, age of merchandise and seasonal trends in determining markdowns. Our markdowns, as a percentage of total sales, have been generally consistent from year to year. Beginning with the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008, we implemented a strategy to more closely monitor and control our markdowns of inventory to avoid marking down items that continued to sell through at reasonable rates. We believe this strategy contributed to overall margin by focusing our markdowns more on inventory that was truly slow moving and less on the basis of age in inventory alone. Changes in markdowns from period-to-period are discussed as a part of our Results of Operations analysis below. Actual required permanent markdowns could differ materially from management's initial estimates based on future customer demand or economic conditions. The effect of a 1.0% permanent markdown in the value of our inventory at June 30, 2012 would result in a decline in gross profit and diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 of $2.7 million and $0.04, respectively.

        Insurance and Self-Insurance Reserves—We use a combination of insurance and self-insurance plans to provide for the potential liabilities associated with workers' compensation, general liability, property insurance, director and officers' liability insurance, vehicle liability and employee health care benefits. Our stop loss limits per claim are $500,000 for workers' compensation, $250,000 for general liability, and $150,000 for medical. Liabilities associated with the risks that are retained by us are

27


Table of Contents

estimated, in part, by historical claims experience, severity factors and the use of loss development factors.

        The insurance liabilities we record are primarily influenced by changes in payroll expense, sales, number of vehicles, and the frequency and severity of claims and include a reserve for claims incurred but not yet reported. Our estimated reserves may be materially different from our future actual claim costs, and, when required adjustments to our estimate reserves are identified, the liability will be adjusted accordingly in that period. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, we made reductions of approximately $1.4 million to our workers' compensation liability and associated current period insurance expense due to reductions in projected actuarially determined ultimate losses resulting from improvements in claims experience. In recent years, we have enhanced our safety programs that have generated an overall decrease in workers compensation and general liability losses. Our self-insurance reserves for workers' compensation, general liability and medical were $5.9 million, $3.1 million, and $0.9 million at June 30, 2012, respectively; $6.9 million, $2.6 million, and $1.3 million at June 30, 2011, respectively; and $9.1 million, $2.2 million, and $1.2 million at June 30, 2010, respectively.

        We recognize insurance expenses based on the date of an occurrence of a loss including the actual and estimated ultimate costs of our claims. Claims are paid from our reserves and our current period insurance expense is adjusted for the difference in prior period recorded reserves and actual payments. Current period insurance expenses also include the amortization of our premiums paid to our insurance carriers. Expenses for workers' compensation, general liability and medical insurance were $3.4 million, $2.8 million and $9.5 million, respectively, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012; $1.7 million, $3.2 million and $9.1 million, respectively, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011; and $3.9 million, $3.3 million and $8.5 million, respectively, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.

        Impairment of long-lived assets—Long-lived assets, such as buildings, equipment, furniture and fixtures, and leasehold improvements, are reviewed for impairment at least annually and whenever an event or change in circumstances indicates that their carrying values may not be recoverable. If the carrying value exceeds the sum of the expected undiscounted cash flows, the assets are considered impaired. For store-level long-lived assets, expected cash flows are estimated based on the historical cash flows generated by the store and are adjusted based on management's estimates of expected future results. Impairment is measured as the amount by which the carrying value of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset. Fair value is determined by quoted market values, discounted cash flows or internal appraisals, as applicable. Impairment, if any, is recorded in the period in which the impairment occurred. We have not recorded any material impairment charges in fiscal 2012, 2011, and 2010. As the projection of future cash flows requires the use of management's judgment and estimates, actual results may differ from our estimates. It is possible that additional charges for asset impairments may be recorded in the future.

        Share-based compensation—The Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors and, through express consent of the Compensation Committee, our CEO, are authorized to grant stock options and restricted stock awards from time to time to eligible employees and directors. Those awards may be service or performance based. We grant options with exercise prices equal to the market price of our common stock on the date of the option grant as determined in accordance with the terms of our equity incentive plans. The majority of the options granted prior to June 30, 2008 vest daily over periods of four to five years and expire ten years from the date of grant. Options granted after June 30, 2008, typically vest over periods of one to three years with equal portions of the grant vesting on an annual basis and expire ten years from the date of grant. In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, we recognize compensation expense at an amount equal to the fair value of share-based payments granted under compensation arrangements. We calculate the fair value of stock options using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Determining the fair value of share-based awards at the grant date requires judgment in developing assumptions, which involve a number of variables. These variables include, but are not limited to, the expected stock price volatility over the term of the

awards, the expected dividend yield and expected stock option exercise behavior. In addition, we also use judgment in estimating the number of share-based awards that are expected to be forfeited.

        Selling, general and administrative expenses are comprised of wages and benefits, rent and occupancy costs, depreciation, advertising, store operating expenses and corporate office costs. In dollars, selling, general and administrative increases and decreases are generally attributable to changes in variable expenses. Variable expenses include payroll and related benefits, advertising expense and other expenses such as credit card fees.

Year Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Year Ended June 30, 2011

        Net sales decreased $8.4 million, or 1.0%, to $812.8 million in fiscal 2012 from $821.2 million in fiscal 2011, primarily due to a decrease in sales from comparable stores (stores open at least one year) of 3.1%. The decrease in comparable store sales was comprised of a decrease in comparable store transactions of 3.3%, offset by an increase in comparable store average ticket of 0.2%.

        Gross profit for fiscal 2012 was $308.9 million, a decrease of 1.4% compared to $313.3 million in gross profit for fiscal 2011. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit decreased to 38.0% in fiscal 2012 compared with 38.2% in the same period last year. This decrease of 0.2% in gross profit percentage was partly due to higher freight costs resulting from a slight increase in fuel costs combined with slightly higher markdowns.

        Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $6.1 million, or 2.1%, to $301.4 million in fiscal 2012 from $295.3 million in the prior fiscal year. As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased 1.1% to 37.1% in fiscal 2012 from 36.0% in fiscal 2011 in part attributed to severance costs of $2.7 million associated with the departure of our Chief Executive Officer. Excluding the $2.7 million in costs associated with the departure of the CEO, selling, general and administrative cost was $298.7 million or 36.7% of sales. On a per store basis adjusted selling, general and administrative expense, excluding the aforementioned costs, increased 2.2% compared with fiscal year 2011. This increase was primarily due to the decline in expense leverage from lower sales volume and higher rent expense from increased square footage in certain new and relocated stores.

        Net interest and other expense decreased $0.5 million to $2.0 million in fiscal 2012 compared to $2.5 million in fiscal 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in total interest expense related to the improved terms of our amended credit facility and lower borrowings in fiscal 2012.

Table of Contents

        Income tax expense decreased to $1.5 million in fiscal 2012 from $6.0 million in the prior fiscal year. Our effective tax rate decreased from 38.4% in fiscal 2011 to 27.6% in fiscal 2012, in large part, due to the recognition of the Hire Act Retention Tax Credit in fiscal year 2012 and the reduction of non-deductible expenses in fiscal year 2012.

Year Ended June 30, 2011 Compared to Year Ended June 30, 2010

        Net sales decreased $7.1 million, or 0.9%, to $821.2 million in fiscal 2011 from $828.3 million in fiscal 2010, primarily due to a decrease in sales from comparable stores (stores open at least one year) of 1.2%. The decrease in comparable store sales was comprised of a decrease in comparable store transactions of 1.7%, offset by an increase in comparable store average ticket of 0.5%.

        Gross profit for fiscal 2011 was $313.3 million, almost flat compared to $314.0 million in gross profit for fiscal 2010. The change in gross profit was attributable to a decline in net sales offset by an increase in our gross profit percentage. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased to 38.2% in fiscal 2011 compared with 37.9% in the same period last year. This increase of 0.3% in gross profit percentage was attributed to a 0.2% decline due to improved product pricing from our vendors, 0.2% decline in markdowns, offset with a 0.1% increase in shrink.

        Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $1.4 million, or 0.5%, to $295.3 million in fiscal 2011 from $293.9 million in the prior fiscal year. The increase was primarily attributable to increased advertising, legal and outbound freight costs, offset by a decrease in wages and bonus expenses. As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased 0.5% to 36.0% in fiscal 2011 from 35.5% in fiscal 2010. These expenses increased on a per store basis by one half of one percent in fiscal 2011 compared with fiscal 2010.

        Net interest and other expense decreased $1.0 million to $2.5 million in fiscal 2011 compared to $3.5 million in fiscal 2010. This decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in other expenses related to losses on disposal of assets recorded in fiscal 2010 of approximately $1.4 million.

        Income tax expense increased to $6.0 million in fiscal 2011 from $5.9 million in the prior fiscal year. Our effective tax rate increased from 35.5% in fiscal 2010 to 38.4% in fiscal 2011 due to the increase in book/tax differences in fiscal 2011 in contrast to favorable tax settlements in the prior year that did not recur.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

        We have funded our operations with cash flows generated from operating activities and borrowings under our Revolving Credit Facility. Our cash flows will continue to be utilized for the operation of our business and the use of any excess cash will be determined by the Board of Directors. Our borrowings have historically peaked in the quarter ended September 30 as we build inventory levels prior to the holiday selling season. Given the seasonality of our business, the amount of borrowings under our Revolving Credit Facility may fluctuate materially depending on various factors, including the time of year, our needs and the opportunity to acquire merchandise inventory. We have no off-balance sheet arrangements or transactions with unconsolidated, limited purpose or variable interest entities, nor do we have material transactions or commitments involving related persons or entities.

        Net cash flows provided by and used in operating activities for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, were $59.5 million, $(0.1) million, and $32.1 million, respectively. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to net income of $3.9 million combined with an increase in accounts payable of $35.8 million and an adjustment for depreciation expense of $14.5 million.

        For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, cash used in operating activities was primarily due to decrease in accrued liabilities of $5.6 million and an increase in inventory of $25.7 million offset by net

30


Table of Contents

income of $9.6 million, an increase in accounts payable of $2.7 million, an increase in deferred income taxes of $3.4 million and an adjustment for depreciation expense of $16.1 million. The increase in inventory was due to opportunistic purchases of inventory and the shortfall of sales in the fourth quarter. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to net income of $10.7 million combined with an increase in accounts payable of $12.4 million and an adjustment for depreciation expense of $15.6 million. These sources of cash flow from operations were offset primarily by an increase in inventory of $15.7 million. The increases in accounts payable and inventory were due to increased purchases of inventory to meet customer demand. A significant portion of our revenues and net earnings are realized during the period from October through December while an increase in merchandise purchases in preparation for this holiday selling season occurs in prior months. Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, were $39.7 million, $19.4 million, and $23.5 million, respectively. There has been no material change in our vendor payment policy.

        Net cash used in investing activities was due to capital expenditures of $13.8 million, $20.6 million, and $17.4 million for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively. During each year, capital expenditures were primarily for store fixtures and leasehold improvements for new and existing stores, distribution center equipment and improvements, information systems improvements, and corporate office equipment and improvements. In fiscal 2013, we expect to spend in the range of $12-15 million for capital expenditures, primarily for fixtures for new and existing stores, distribution center equipment and improvements, and systems upgrades and improvements. Capital expenditures will be provided by funds generated from operations.

        Net cash used in financing activities of $25.4 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 was primarily due to a change in cash overdraft of $18.8 million and the purchase of treasury shares of $6.1 million. Net cash provided by financing activities of $16.4 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 was primarily due to a change in cash overdraft of $15.4 million. Net cash provided by financing activities of $3.1 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 was primarily due to a change in cash overdraft of $3.4 million.

        On February 1, 2008, our Board of Directors voted to terminate the declaration of an annual cash dividend. The Board of Directors will consider the full range of alternatives with regard to the use of any excess cash flow in the future.

        We have a credit agreement providing for an asset-based, five-year senior secured revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Credit Facility") in the amount of up to $180.0 million. Our indebtedness under the credit facility is secured by a lien on substantially all of our assets. On November 17, 2011, we entered into a third amendment to the Revolving Credit Facility. This amendment, among other things, extended the maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility from December 15, 2013 to November 17, 2016 and removed the "clean down" provision. The Revolving Credit Facility contains certain restrictive covenants, which affect, among others, our ability to incur liens or incur additional indebtedness, sell assets or merge or consolidate with any other entity. In addition, we are currently required to maintain availability under the Revolving Credit Facility of not less than $18.0 million.

        At June 30, 2012, we had no amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility, $8.6 million of outstanding letters of credit and availability of $123.5 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. Letters of credit under the Revolving Credit Facility are primarily for self insurance purposes. We incur commitment fees of up to 0.375% on the unused portion of the Revolving Credit Facility. Any borrowing under the Revolving Credit Facility incurs interest at LIBOR or the prime rate, depending on the type of borrowing, plus an applicable margin. These rates are increased or reduced as our average daily availability changes. Interest expense of $2.3 million for fiscal 2012 was due primarily to commitment fees of $1.1 million, the amortization of financing fees of $0.9 million and $0.3 million in

31

interest expense on borrowings. As of June 30, 2012, we were in compliance with all required covenants.

        We anticipate that our net cash flows from operations and borrowings under our Revolving Credit Facility will be sufficient to fund our working capital needs, planned capital expenditures, and interest payments for the next twelve months.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

        We had no off-balance sheet arrangements as of June 30, 2012.

Contractual Obligations

        The following table summarizes our contractual obligations at June 30, 2012 and the effects such obligations are expected to have on our liquidity and cash flow in future periods (in thousands):

Total

  $ 215,325   $ 72,760   $ 94,455   $ 40,215   $ 7,895  

        We do not consider merchandise purchase orders to be contractual obligations due to designated cancellation dates on the face of the purchase order. Contractually required payments for maintenance, insurance and taxes on our leased properties are estimated above as a percentage of rent based on historical trends. These amounts can vary based on multiple factors including inflation, macroeconomic conditions, various local tax rates and appraised values of our rental properties. Commitment fees on our Revolving Credit Facility are calculated based on contractual commitment fees and standby letter of credit fees assuming our current balances of zero on the Revolving Credit Facility and letters of credit totaling $8.6 million. It is likely we will incur additional interest expense than that calculated above as we may borrow amounts, from time to time, under our Revolving Credit Facility.

        Our quarterly results of operations may fluctuate based upon such factors as the number and timing of store openings, the amount of net sales contributed by new and existing stores, the mix of merchandise sold, pricing, store closings or relocations, competitive factors and general economic and weather-related conditions. The timing of sales events could impact the weighting of sales between quarters. We expect to continue to experience seasonal fluctuations in our business, with a significant percentage of our net sales and operating income being generated in the quarter ending December 31, which includes the holiday selling season.

Inflation

        In our opinion, the overall effect of inflation has not had a material effect on our results of operations in any of the fiscal years of 2012, 2011, or 2010. We cannot assure that inflation will not materially affect our results of operations in the future.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

        In April 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04: Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS. The Amendments change the wording used to describe the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. Specifically, the amendments clarify the intent around applying existing fair value measurements and disclosure requirements, as well as, those that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements. These amendments are to be applied prospectively for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, and early application is not permitted. Due to the level of immateriality of the Level 1, 2 and 3 assets and liabilities that are addressed with these

33


Table of Contents

amendments, the Company does not believe that any of these amendments will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

        In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05 Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income. This standard eliminated the option to present components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The preparer is given the option to present all nonowner changes in stockholders' equity in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. This alternative presentation of comprehensive income is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. This accounting standard update is not effective for the Company until July 1, 2012. Due to the level of immateriality of its other comprehensive income, the Company decided not to pursue early adoption of this standard.

Item 7A.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

        We are exposed to various market risks, including changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. Market risk is the potential loss arising from adverse changes in market prices and rates, such as foreign currency exchange and interest rates. Based on our market risk sensitive instruments outstanding as of June 30, 2012, as described below, we have determined that there was no material market risk exposure to our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows as of such date. We do not enter into derivatives or other financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

        Foreign Currency Exchange Rates.    We enter into foreign currency forward contracts with major financial institutions, which participate on our Revolving Credit Facility, to manage and reduce the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on contractual merchandise purchases with certain international vendors, primarily in Euros. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, the only transactions we hedged were for inventory purchase orders placed with foreign vendors for which the purchase order had to be settled in the vendor's foreign currency. The periods for the forward foreign exchange contracts correspond to the periods of the hedged transactions. Gains and losses on forward foreign exchange contracts are reflected in the statement of operations and were immaterial to us as a whole in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.

        The estimated fair value of foreign currency contracts represents the amount required to enter into offsetting contracts with similar remaining maturities based on quoted market prices. At June 30, 2012, fair value of all outstanding contracts was immaterial. A large fluctuation in exchange rates for these currencies could have a material effect on their fair value; however, because we only use these forward foreign currency contracts to hedge future inventory purchases at a fixed price in the vendor's foreign currency at the time the purchase order is made and such hedging activities have been immaterial, any fluctuations in the exchange rate should not materially affect us.

        You can find more information about the accounting policies for our forward foreign currency contracts and our financial instruments in Note 1 of the notes to our consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Form 10-K.

        Interest Rates.    The Company's Revolving Credit Facility is a variable interest rate agreement, and therefore affected by fluctuations in market interest rates. Borrowings may incur interest at either LIBOR or the prime rate depending on the term of the borrowing plus an applicable margin. In fiscal 2012, the Company incurred $0.3 million in interest expense on borrowings. Due to the minimal period of time the Company sustains its outstanding borrowings, it considers its exposure to adverse market interest rate fluctuations to be minimal. As of June 30, 2012, the Company did not have any long-term debt outstanding. More information about debt held by the Company is available in Note 3 of the notes to our consolidated financial statements included herein this Form 10-K.

Item 9A.    Controls and Procedures

Disclosure Control Procedures

        Based on our management's evaluation (with participation of our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer), our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) or Rule 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act")) were effective as of June 30, 2012 to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in this Report on Form 10-K was (1) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities Exchange Commission's rules and forms and (2) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

        A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Because of inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues, if any, within a company have been detected. Accordingly, our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of our disclosure control system are met and, as set forth above, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer have concluded, based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this report, that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that the objectives of our disclosure control system were met.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

        Management of Tuesday Morning is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or Rule 15(d)-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Tuesday Morning's internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

36


Table of Contents

        Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.

        Our management (with the participation of our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer) assessed the effectiveness of Tuesday Morning's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control—Integrated Framework. Based on our assessment, we believe that, as of June 30, 2012, Tuesday Morning's internal control over financial reporting is effective based on those criteria.

        The Company's independent registered public accounting firm has issued an attestation report on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012. The report follows on the next page.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

The Board of Directors and Stockholders of Tuesday Morning Corporation

        We have audited Tuesday Morning Corporation's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (the COSO criteria). Tuesday Morning Corporation's management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting included in the accompanying Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the company's internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.

        We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

        A company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

        Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

        In our opinion, Tuesday Morning Corporation maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012, based on the COSO criteria.

        We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated balance sheets of Tuesday Morning Corporation as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2012, of Tuesday Morning Corporation and our report dated August 30, 2012 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

The Board of Directors and Stockholders of Tuesday Morning Corporation

        We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Tuesday Morning Corporation as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2012. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

        We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

        In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Tuesday Morning Corporation at June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2012, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

        We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), Tuesday Morning Corporation's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission and our report dated August 30, 2012 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.

TUESDAY MORNING CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(All dollar amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)

(1) NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

        We operated 852 discount retail stores in 43 states as of June 30, 2012 (861 and 852 stores at June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively). We sell close-out home furnishings, housewares, gifts and related items, which we purchase at below wholesale prices. Our stores are generally open seven days a week and focus on periodic "sales events," that occur in each month except January and July, which historically have been weaker months for retailers. Our stores are normally closed for up to five days during the months of January and July as we conduct physical inventories at all of our stores.

(a)
Basis of Presentation—The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Tuesday Morning Corporation, a Delaware corporation, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. We operate our business as a single operating segment.

(b)
Cash and Cash Equivalents—Cash and cash equivalents are comprised of credit card receivables and all highly liquid instruments with original maturities of three months or less. Cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. At June 30, 2012 and 2011, credit card receivables from third party consumer credit card providers were $8,800 and $3,600, respectively.

(c)
Inventories—Inventories, consisting of finished goods, are stated at the lower of cost or market using the retail inventory method for store inventory and the specific identification method for warehouse inventory. Amounts are removed from inventory based on the retail inventory method which applies a cost-to-retail ratio to our various retail deductions (sales, markdowns, shrink, etc.) to arrive at cost of sales. Buying, distribution, freight costs and certain other expenses are capitalized as part of inventory and are expensed as cost of sales as the related inventory is sold. These capitalized expenses included in ending inventory totaled $31.8 million and $29.5 million at June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. We expensed $67.3 million, $68.0 million, and $68.9 million, of such capitalized inventory costs in cost of sales for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively.

(1) NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

(d)
Property and Equipment—Property and equipment are stated at cost. Buildings, furniture, fixtures, leasehold improvements and equipment are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:


Estimated Useful Lives

Buildings   30 years
Furniture and fixtures   3 to 7 years
Leasehold improvements   Shorter of lease life or life of improvement
Equipment   5 to 10 years
(e)
Deferred Financing Costs—Deferred financing costs represent fees paid in connection with obtaining bank and other long-term financing. These fees are amortized over the term of the related financing using the effective interest method.

(f)
Income Taxes—Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using statutory tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the date of enactment. We file our annual federal income tax return on a consolidated basis. Furthermore, we recognize uncertain tax positions when we have determined it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination. However, new information may become available or applicable laws or regulations may change thereby resulting in a favorable or unfavorable adjustment to amounts recorded.

(g)
Self Insurance Reserves—We use a combination of insurance and self-insurance plans to provide for the potential liabilities associated with workers' compensation, general liability, property insurance, director and officers' liability insurance, vehicle liability and employee health care benefits. Our stop loss limits per claim are $500 for workers' compensation, $250 for general liability, and $150 for medical. Liabilities associated with the risks that are retained by us are estimated, in part, by historical claims experience, severity factors and the use of loss development factors.

(h)
Revenue Recognition—Sales are recorded at the point of sale and conveyance of merchandise to customers. Sales are net of returns and exclude sales tax.

(i)
Advertising—Costs for direct mail, television, radio, newspaper, and other media are expensed as the advertised events take place. Advertising expenses for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010 were $28,875, $28,094, and $26,963, respectively. We do not receive money from vendors to support our advertising expenditures. As of June 30, 2012, there was prepaid advertising of $315 compared to prepaid advertising of $522 at June 30, 2011.

(j)
Use of Estimates—The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

(k)
Financial Instruments—The fair value of financial instruments is determined by reference to various market data and other valuation techniques as appropriate. The only financial instruments we carry are our revolving credit facility and foreign currency exchange contracts for merchandise purchases denominated in foreign currency.

(l)
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of—Long-lived assets, principally property and equipment and leasehold improvements, are reviewed for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. For assets that are to be held and used, an impairment is recognized when the estimated undiscounted cash flows associated with the asset or group of assets is less than their carrying value. If impairment exists, an adjustment is made to write the asset down to its fair value, and a loss is recorded as the difference between the carrying value and fair value. Fair values are determined based on quoted market values, discounted cash flows or internal appraisals, as applicable. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell. Impairment of long-lived assets has not had a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or liquidity for the periods presented.

(m)
Share-Based Compensation—We recognized share-based compensation costs under the requirements of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles as follows:

 
  Fiscal Years Ended June 30,  
 
  2012   2011   2010  

Amortization of share-based compensation during the period

  $ 1,834   $ 1,836   $ 2,045

(n)
Net Income Per Common Share—Basic net income per common share for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, was calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for each period. Diluted net income per common share for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, was calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares including the impact of dilutive common stock equivalents. See Note 10.

(o)
Recent Accounting Pronouncements—In April 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04: Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS. The Amendments change the wording used to describe the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. Specifically, the amendments clarify the intent around applying existing fair value measurements and disclosure requirements, as well as, those that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements. These amendments are to be applied prospectively for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, and early application is not permitted. Due to the level of immateriality of the Level 1, 2 and 3 assets and liabilities that are addressed with these amendments, the Company does not believe that any of these amendments will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05 Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income. This standard eliminated the option to present components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The preparer is given the option to present all nonowner changes in stockholders' equity in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. This alternative presentation of comprehensive income is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. This accounting standard update is not effective for the Company until July 1, 2012. Due to the level of immateriality of its other comprehensive income, the Company decided not to pursue early adoption of this standard.

(p)
Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)—Comprehensive income (loss) represents our change in equity (net assets), during a period, from transactions and other events and circumstances from non-owner sources. It includes all changes in equity during a period except those resulting from investments or distributions by or to owners. The components of comprehensive income (loss) are

(3) DEBT

        We have a credit agreement providing for an asset-based, five-year senior secured revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Credit Facility") in the amount of up to $180.0 million. Our indebtedness under the credit facility is secured by a lien on substantially all of our assets. On November 17, 2011, we entered into a third amendment to the Revolving Credit Facility. This amendment, among other things, extended the maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility from December 15, 2013 to November 17, 2016 and removed the "clean down" provision. The Revolving Credit Facility contains certain restrictive covenants, which affect, among others, our ability to incur liens or incur additional indebtedness, sell assets or merge or consolidate with any other entity and limit the amount of dividends that can be paid. In addition, we are currently required to maintain availability under the Revolving Credit Facility of not less than $18.0 million.

        At June 30, 2012, we had no amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility, $8.6 million of outstanding letters of credit and availability of $123.5 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. Letters of credit under the Revolving Credit Facility are primarily for self insurance purposes. We incur commitment fees of up to 0.375% on the unused portion of the Revolving Credit Facility. Any borrowing under the Revolving Credit Facility incurs interest at LIBOR or the prime rate, depending on the type of borrowing, plus an applicable margin. These rates are increased or reduced as our average daily availability changes. Interest expense of $2.3 million for fiscal 2012 was due primarily to commitment fees of $1.1 million, the amortization of financing fees of $0.9 million and $0.3 million in interest expense on borrowings. As of June 30, 2012, we were in compliance with all required covenants.

Total gross deferred tax liabilities

    17,301     17,188     12,419  
               

Net deferred tax liability

  $ 4,278   $ 4,850   $ 1,495  
               

        We expect the deferred tax assets at June 30, 2012 to be fully recovered and the deferred tax liabilities at June 30, 2012 to be fully satisfied through the reversal of taxable temporary differences in future years as a result of normal business activities. Accordingly, no valuation allowance for deferred tax assets was considered necessary as of June 30, 2012.

        Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes—The Company or one of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and various state jurisdictions. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2008. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has concluded an examination of the Company for years ending on or before June 30, 2010.

(5) INCOME TAXES (Continued)

        A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits is as follows:

Balance at June 30, 2009

  $ 1,035  

Additions for tax positions of prior years

    33  

Reductions for settlements

    (429 )

    18  

Reductions for lapse of statute of limitations

    (101 )
       

Balance at June 30, 2012

  $ 578  
       

        The balance at June 30, 2012, that, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate is $578. The Company classifies and recognizes interest and penalties accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense. During the years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, we recognized, net of tax effect $18, $22, and $23, in interest, respectively. We paid interest, net of tax, of $92 during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. No interest was paid in the tax year ended June 30, 2011 and 2012.

        We do not anticipate that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease the effective tax rate within 12 months of June 30, 2012.

(6) SHARE-BASED INCENTIVE PLANS

        Performance Shares and Performance Units.    As of June 30, 2012, there were 60,000 performance shares and 60,000 performance units outstanding. Each performance share represents a contingent right to receive one share of common stock and each performance unit represents a contingent right to receive $8.00 in cash. As such, performance units are accounted for as a liability award. The performance shares and performance units vest in one-third tranches over a three year period, subject to the Company's achievement of a performance target during an applicable performance period. Any unvested performance shares and performance units at the end of the performance period are rolled over and become eligible to vest in subsequent performance periods. Any performance share and performance units that are unvested as of the close of business on October 31, 2015 will lapse and be forfeited as of such time.

        Stock Option Awards—We have established the Tuesday Morning Corporation 1997 Long-Term Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the "1997 Plan"), the Tuesday Morning Corporation 2004 Long-Term Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the "2004 Plan"), and the Tuesday Morning Corporation 2008 Long-Term Equity Incentive Plan (the "2008 Plan"), which allow for the granting of stock options to directors, officers and key employees of, and certain other key individuals who perform services for us and our subsidiaries. The 1997 Plan authorized grants of options to purchase up to 4,800,000 shares of authorized, but unissued common stock. Equity awards may no longer be granted under the 1997 Plan but options granted under the plan are still exercisable. The 2004 Plan and the 2008 Plan authorize grants of options to purchase up to 2,000,000 and 2,500,000 shares, respectively, of authorized, but unissued common stock.

        Stock options are awarded with a strike price at a fair market value equal to the average of the high and low trading prices of our common stock on the date of grant in the 1997 Plan and the 2004 Plan. Stock options are awarded with a strike price at a fair market value equal to the closing price of our common stock on the date of the grant in the 2008 Plan.

        Options granted under the 1997 Plan and the 2004 Plan typically vest over periods of one to five years and expire ten years from the date of grant while options granted under the 2008 Plan typically vest over periods of one to three years and expire ten years from the date of grant. Options granted under the 2004 Plan and the 2008 Plan may have certain performance requirements in addition to service terms. If the performance conditions are not satisfied, the options are forfeited. No options with performance conditions were outstanding as of June 30, 2012. The exercise prices of stock options outstanding on June 30, 2012, range between $0.63 and $35.23, which represents the fair market value of our common stock on the date the options were granted. At June 30, 2012, all shares available under the 1997 Plan had been granted and the 1997 Plan terminated pursuant to its terms as of December 29, 2007.

        Restricted Stock Awards—Under the terms of the 1997 Plan, the 2004 Plan, and the 2008 Plan, we may also grant restricted stock to directors, officers, key employees and certain other key individuals who perform services for us and our subsidiaries. Restricted stock awards are not transferable, but bear certain rights of common stock ownership including voting and dividend rights. Shares are valued at the fair market price of our common stock at the date of award. The weighted average grant date fair value of restricted stock awards granted during the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, was $3.57, $4.95, and $3.43, respectively. Shares may be subject to certain performance requirements. If the performance requirements are not met, the restricted shares are forfeited. At December 31, 2007, all shares under the 1997 Plan had been granted and the 1997 Plan terminated pursuant to its terms as of December 29, 2007. Under the 2004 Plan and the 2008 Plan, as of June 30, 2012, there were 190,535 shares of restricted stock outstanding with award vesting periods of one to three years and a weighted average fair value of $3.79 per share. Compensation expense related to restricted shares is recognized ratably over the requisite service period. Expense recorded for all restricted stock awards totaled $668, $1,292, and $1,286 for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively. At June 30, 2012, we had $465 of total unrecognized share-based compensation expense related to restricted stock awards that is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.37 years.

(7) OPERATING LEASES

        We lease substantially all store locations under non-cancelable operating leases. Our leases generally are for a five-year period with two five-year renewal options and, in very limited circumstances, our leases involve a tenant allowance for leasehold improvements. We record rent expense ratably over the life of the lease beginning with the date we take possession of or have the right to use the premises, and if our leases provide for a tenant allowance, we record the landlord reimbursement as a liability and ratably amortize the liability as a reduction to rent expense over the lease term beginning with the date we take possession of or control the physical access to the premises. Leases for new stores also typically allow us the ability to terminate a lease after 24 to 36 months if the store does not achieve sales expectations. Future minimum rental payments under leases are as follows:

        Rent expense for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010 was $82,459, $78,791, and $79,184, respectively. Rent expense includes rent for store locations and warehouses. Rent based on sales is not material to our financial statements.

(8) 401(K) PROFIT SHARING PLAN AND STOCK PURCHASE PROGRAM

        We have a 401(k) profit sharing plan for the benefit of our full-time, eligible employees after six months of service. Under the plan, eligible employees may request us to deduct and contribute from 1% to 20% of their salary to the plan, subject to Internal Revenue Service Regulations. We match each participant's contribution up to 4% of participant's compensation. We expensed contributions of $1,054, $1,027, and $983 for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, 2011, and 2010.

(9) LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

        During 2001 and 2002, we were named as a defendant in three complaints filed in the Superior Court of California in and for the County of Los Angeles. The plaintiffs sought to certify a statewide class made up of some of our current and former employees, which they claim are owed compensation for overtime wages, penalties and interest. The plaintiffs also sought attorney's fees and costs. In October 2003, we entered into a settlement agreement with a sub-class of these plaintiffs consisting of managers-in-training and management trainees which was paid in November 2005 with no material impact to our financial statements. A store manager class was certified. However, in August 2008, our motion for de-certification of the class of store managers was granted, thereby dismissing their class action claim. The California Court of Appeals upheld the trial court's de-certification order and the California Supreme Court has declined to review that decision. We settled the individual claims of two plaintiffs in the lawsuit with no material impact on our financial statements. In addition, approximately 75 individual plaintiffs initially chose to pursue their claims individually and filed separate lawsuits against us alleging overtime violations. In May 2012, the company entered into a settlement and release agreement with the remaining plaintiffs to dismiss all pending lawsuits in the aggregate amount of $463, which includes all attorney fees and past decisions, and will release the Company from any past manager litigation.

        A similar lawsuit, which also alleges claims concerning meal and rest periods, was filed in Orange County, California in 2004, by managers, managers-in-training and assistant managers, and an amended complaint was filed in July 2007. In December 2008, the four plaintiffs abandoned their class action claim and have elected to pursue their individual claims as well as claims under California's Private Attorney General Act with respect to such allegations. The Court has found in our favor on all claims and a final judgment has been entered. The plaintiffs have chosen not to pursue an appeal. A companion lawsuit alleging the same claims was filed in Orange County Superior Court in December 2008 on behalf of approximately thirty-four additional individual plaintiffs. This lawsuit includes a claim under California's Private Attorney General Act. Of the 34 plaintiffs, we have settled 11 cases representing the store manager plaintiffs for approximately $185, including all attorney fees. Trial dates have been set for September 2012.

        In December 2008, a class action lawsuit was filed by hourly, non-exempt employees in the Superior Court of California in and for the County of Los Angeles, alleging claims covering meal and rest period violations. The parties are presently conducting discovery. The court has certified the class on a limited issue relating to the use of on-duty meal period agreements.

        In July 2009, a lawsuit alleging failure to pay overtime compensation was filed in Alabama by a former store manager. The plaintiff sought to certify a class action made up current and former store managers. In fiscal 2010, we filed a request with the court to deny this motion. The court has not ruled, and no trial date has been set.

(9) LEGAL PROCEEDINGS (Continued)

        In July 2012, a discrimination claim was filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by our former CEO. The Company believes this charge is without merit and intends to vigorously defend this matter.

        We intend to vigorously defend all pending actions. We do not believe these or any other legal proceedings pending or threatened against us would have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

Exhibit 10.26

RETENTION BONUS AGREEMENT

        This Retention Bonus Agreement is dated and effective June 5, 2012, and is between Tuesday Morning Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "Company") and                          ("Executive").

        Executive is currently an employee of the Company. The Company values Executive's contributions to the Company during the period of its management transition and believes Executive will continue to contribute to the success of the Company during this period. The Company wants to assure Executive's continuing contribution during this period by providing an incentive bonus to Executive on the terms of this Agreement, and Executive wishes to accept this incentive bonus on those terms.

        Therefore, Executive and the Company agree as follows:

        1.    Retention Bonus.    

        a.     The Company will pay Executive a retention bonus in the aggregate amount of $            , 20% of which is payable on August 31, 2012, and the remaining 80% of which is payable on August 30, 2013, if Executive remains employed by the Company on the applicable payment date.

        b.     If Executive's employment with the Company is terminated without Cause before August 31, 2012, then the Company will nevertheless pay Executive 20% of the retention bonus amount on August 31, 2012. If Executive's employment with the Company is terminated for any other reason before August 31, 2012, then the Company will not pay Executive any amount of the retention bonus.

        c.     If Executive's employment with the Company is terminated without Cause before August 30, 2013, then the Company will nevertheless pay Executive 80% of the retention bonus amount on August 30, 2013. If Executive's employment with the Company is terminated for any other reason after August 31, 2012, but before August 30, 2013, then the Company will not pay Executive 80% of the retention bonus amount on August 30, 2013.

        2.    Definition of Cause.    For purposes of this Agreement, "cause" means (a) the commission of a felony, a crime involving moral turpitude or any other act or omission involving willful dishonesty, disloyalty or fraud with respect to the Company or any of its subsidiaries, (b) conduct tending to bring the Company or any of its subsidiaries into substantial public disgrace or disrepute, (c) substantial and repeated failure, after reasonable notice and opportunity to cure, to perform duties consistent with the office or position of Executive, (d) gross negligence or willful misconduct with respect to the Company or any of its subsidiaries or (e) any material breach of (i) Executive's duties of confidentiality with respect to information about the Company and its subsidiaries, (ii) the Company's policies applicable to Executive, (iii) any other written agreement between Executive and the Company or (iv) this Agreement.

        3.    Executive's Obligations.    Executive will devote Executive's full business time and attention (except for permitted vacation periods and reasonable periods of illness or other incapacity) to the business and affairs of the Company and its subsidiaries.

        4.    No Right to Employment.    Nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed as an employment agreement or as obligating the Company to continue to employ the Executive at any time.

        5.    Notices.    Any notice to be given in connection with this Agreement will be in writing and will be either personally delivered, or mailed by first class mail, return receipt requested, to the recipient at the applicable address indicated beside the signatures to this Agreement.

        6.    Complete Agreement.    This Agreement embodies the complete agreement and understanding between Executive and the Company regarding the retention bonus and supersedes and preempts any prior understandings, agreements or representations by or between Executive and the Company, written or oral.

        7.    Counterparts.    This Agreement may be executed in two counterparts, each of which is deemed to be an original and both of which taken together constitute one agreement.


        8.    Choice of Law.    This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with Texas law.

        9.    Amendment and Waiver.    This Agreement may be amended or waived only in a writing signed by the Company and Executive. No course of conduct or failure or delay in enforcing this Agreement will affect the validity, binding effect or enforceability of this Agreement.
