D.I.Y. HOME WAREHOUSE, INC. ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF ITS THIRD AKRON, OHIO LOCATION

CLEVELAND, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- DIY Home Warehouse, Inc. (Nasdaq-NNM: DIYH) today announced the opening of the Company's fifteenth location. This facility, in southern Akron, opened on June 2, 1995 with 85,400 square feet of indoor selling space and a 15,000 square foot outdoor lawn and garden center. In addition, this Akron store houses the Company's second indoor greenhouse. The first such greenhouse was introduced in the Company's Medina store which opened in March 1995.

Clifford L. Reynolds, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The location in southern Akron represents a prime location for the Company and represents DIY's third Akron store opened since September, 1994. In less than one year, we have moved in to this market with three stores in Akron and one store in Canton, as well as an additional store in nearby Medina, which positions DIY as the dominant home center in the Akron/Canton marketplace."

The southern Akron store stocks approximately 30,000 different kinds of building materials, home improvement, and lawn and garden products which are sold to do-it-yourself home improvement, repair and remodeling customers and professional contractors. This store also features superior customer service, installation services, and free do-it-yourself clinics.

Mr. Reynolds said, "We are pleased with the opening of this and our other 1995 openings in the first half of the year as all of these stores will benefit from the spring and summer selling season." The Company has opened four stores to date in 1995 and negotiations are nearing completion for a fifth new store to be added in the second half of the year.

DIY Home Warehouse, Inc. is traded on Nasdaq-NNM, and is quoted daily in the Wall Street Journal. Its Nasdaq symbol is DIYH.
