We are proud of Union Bank’s commitment to Anna’s, illustrating their confidence in our financial condition, strategic initiatives, and long-term growth potential as the leader in value-priced home fashions sector. The new facility provides us with the resources and flexibility to continue our aggressive growth strategy.”
