BIG O TIRES TO ROLL OUT OF NEW LAS VEGAS CENTER

 LAS VEGAS, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Big O Tires Inc. (NASDAQ: BIGO) will consolidate three distribution centers into one new facility in the Las Vegas area by 1995, company officials have announced.
 The Englewood, Colo.-based company expects to spend from $7 million to $9 million building the 300,000-square-foot facility, which will replace 358,000 square feet of aggregate space at the other centers -- two in California and one in Denver, said Beth Hayne, Big O spokeswoman.
 "We will save significantly by this consolidation," said Hayne, "and our distribution operations definitely will be more efficient."
 Tom Hartley, chairman of the Nevada Development Authority (NDA), said, "This is a real coup for Southern Nevada. NDA has been working with Big O and Bill Jannen, national director of distribution for the company, for the last two years. Big O also looked at Utah and Arizona before choosing us. We look forward to them joining our community."
 The specific Southern Nevada site will be announced when details are complete. Approximately 60 jobs will be created for Southern Nevadans at the new site.
 Big O will join other major distribution facilities such as Levi Strauss, Lechters, Service Merchandise and T.J. Maxx.
