LECHTERS, INC. APPOINTS MICHAEL F. ANTHONY AS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT

 HARRISON, N.J., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Donald Jonas, chairman and chief executive officer of Lechters, Inc. (NASDAQ: LECH) today announced the appointment of Michael F. Anthony to the position of executive vice president, vacant since June 1992.
 Mr. Anthony, age 37, had served as vice president and general merchandise manager since joining the company in January 1989, and continues to serve as a member of the board of directors. Mr. Anthony is replaced as vice president and general merchandise manager by Ms. Jane Gilmartin, previously divisional merchandise manager for gifts since 1990,
 Commenting on the move, Mr. Jonas said "We are indeed fortunate to be able to make this transition without anticipated changes in the company's merchandising plans. Mike Anthony's experience in the development and rollout of Lechters' Famous Brands concept, our new prototype store format and our larger mall-based stores and Home Stores will serve the company well as we expand his responsibilities to include both merchandising and operations."
 Prior to joining Lechters, Mr. Anthony served as vice president and divisional merchandise manager with Gold Circle, a former retail division of Federated Department Stores from 1983 to 1988.
 Lechters is a specialty retailer of primarily brand name basic housewares, tabletop and home decor items, and textiles operating 516 stores in 39 states.
