3. Commitments and contingencies

Leases – The Company leases retail stores, distribution and office facilities, and certain equipment. Original non-cancelable lease terms range from three to ten years, and store leases generally contain renewal options for additional years. A number of the Company’s store leases provide for contingent rental payments based upon sales. Contingent rent amounts were insignificant in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2016 and May 2, 2015. Total rent expense under operating leases was $49,159 and $44,558 for 13 weeks ended April 30, 2016 and May 2, 2015, respectively.

General litigation – The Company is involved in various legal proceedings that are incidental to the conduct of our business, including four putative employment class action lawsuits in California. In the opinion of management, the amount of any liability with respect to these proceedings, either individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, consolidated financial position or liquidity.
