In some of our comments, we may ask you to provide us with information so we may better understand your disclosure. Please respond to this letter by amending your registration statement and providing the requested information. If you do not believe our comments apply to your facts and circumstances or do not believe an amendment is appropriate, please tell us why in your response. After reviewing any amendment to your registration statement and the information you provide in response to these comments, we may have additional comments. Registration Statement on Form S-1 filed February 16, 2021 Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations Non-GAAP Financial Measures, page 69 1. We note your response to our previously issued comment 6. We continue to believe that adjusting for store preopening costs is not appropriate. Your presentation of the number of stores reopened or remodeled over the past 5 years clearly indicates that remodeling and reopening stores is a part of your ongoing operations. Please revise your filing as previously requested to eliminate the "Location pre-opening and closing costs excluding loss on disposal of fixed assets" adjustment. Refer to the guidance in Question 100.01 of the Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations on Non-GAAP Measures. Matt Susz FirstName LastNameMatt Susz JOANN Inc.
