HEILIG-MEYERS COMPANY TO DEVELOP REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION CENTER IN GEORGIA
 RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilig-Meyers Company (NYSE: HMY), the Richmond-based home furnishings retailer, today announced its plans to develop a regional distribution center in Thomasville, Ga. This distribution center will be Heilig-Meyers' fifth such facility.
 The Company expects the distribution center in Thomasville to be operational by September 1992. The estimated 280,000 square foot facility will be developed at a total cost of approximately $7,000,000. At full capacity this facility is expected to serve approximately 95 stores and employ 100 people.
 William C. DeRusha, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented that Heilig-Meyers has operated stores in Alabama, Florida and Georgia for a number of years. He noted, however, that the Company is increasing its commitment to this region with the location of the distribution center in Thomasville. DeRusha also stated that Thomasville offers an excellent pro-business environment, a good transportation network and a strong local government.
 Gerald L. Rainey, Chairman of the Industrial Committee of Thomasville/Thomas County Chamber of Commerce, stated: "We were able to gain the interest of Heilig-Meyers by marketing our community, but it was our ability to ultimately serve the needs of the company that made this decision possible. We thank Heilig-Meyers for their confidence in our community and we pledge to make this a successful investment for their fine company."
 Heilig-Meyers Company, a Virginia corporation, presently operates 363 stores in 14 states.
