 HECHINGER COMPANY ANNOUNCES AUGUST SALES
 LANDOVER, Md., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Hechinger Company


(NASDAQ-NMS: HECHA, HECHB) today announced sales for August 1992 of $137.8 million, which represents a 14 percent increase from August 1991 sales of $121.4 million. Comparable store sales were up 3 percent for the month.
 Comparable store sales for August 1992 were up 1 percent for the Hechinger stores division and 3 percent for the Home Quarters Warehouse division. Sales for the month were adversely impacted due to unseasonable weather conditions and the lateness of the Labor Day holiday.
 In addition, today the company celebrated the grand opening of its first Home Quarters Warehouse store in the Louisville, Kentucky market. Nine Home Quarters Warehouse stores have already opened this year, with five more scheduled to open before the end of the year.
 Hechinger Company is a leading specialty retailer, currently operating 122 home centers. The company serves the growing home improvement industry through its three divisions: Hechinger, Home Quarters Warehouse and Triangle Building Centers.
