4.  RESTRUCTURING AND OTHER CHARGES

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, we began implementing initiatives intended to reduce costs and improve operating performance.  These initiatives included a store rationalization program which identified approximately 250 stores to be closed as well as a profit improvement program to drive operating efficiencies and improve our expense structure.  These programs were substantially completed in fiscal 2016 and resulted in the closure of 75 Jos. A. Bank full line stores, the closure of 56 factory and outlet stores at Jos. A. Bank and Men’s Wearhouse and the closure of 102 Men’s Wearhouse and Tux stores.

A summary of the charges incurred in fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015 is presented in the table below (amounts in thousands):
