Moore Incorporated for $62.1 million, including customer relationships and tradenames totaling $56.0 million and $5.2 million, respectively. In connection with the transaction, we also leased a distribution facility in New Jersey and 19 store locations. The fair values of the intangible assets acquired were determined by using the income approach. The income approach indicates value for a subject based on the present value of cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. Projected cash flows are discounted at a market rate of return that reflects the relative risk of achieving the cash flows and the time value of money.
As of February 1, 2020 and February 2, 2019, goodwill totaled $94.3 million and $112.1 million, respectively. As a result of our impairment testing in fiscal 2019, we fully impaired goodwill of $17.8 million related to our Darice wholesale business (see Note 1 for further explanation). The remaining goodwill balance as of February 1, 2020 is related to our Michaels brand.
