This exceeds the 1975 figure by approximately $43,000. This becomes even more significant in view of the fact that the store was closed for llworkdays this summer due to its move and remodeling. 16. Voluntary Investment Plan: We have been advised by Connecticut General that the guaranteed rate of interest for 1977 will be 8.150, the same as prevailed for 1976. Sometime in March 1977 we will receive an additional increment of interest for 1976. We have been advised that the outlook is very good for a better-than-average increment due to the fact that the company had a very good financial experience in 1976 and due to the probability that the cost factors for 1976 would be :less than had been anticipated.
