 HEILIG-MEYERS OPENS REGIONAL DISTRIBUTION CENTER IN GEORGIA
 RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilig-Meyers Company (NYSE: HMY), the Richmond-based home furnishings retailer, today announced the opening of a regional distribution center in Thomasville, Ga. This distribution center is Heilig-Meyers' fifth such facility.
 The 280,000-square foot distribution center was developed at a total cost of $7 million and was designed to serve over 95 stores and employ approximately 100 people. Initially, this facility will serve 65 existing Heilig-Meyers stores.
 Troy A. Peery, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer, stated that this distribution center will allow the Company to continue its expansion in Alabama, Georgia and Florida. Additional growth opportunities will result from shifting the responsibility for existing stores to Thomasville, thereby increasing capacity in the company's other distribution centers.
