LESLIE'S POOLMART ANNOUNCES MAY SALES RESULTS

 CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Leslie's Poolmart (NASDAQ: LESL) today announced preliminary sales results for the month of May 1993.
 The company's preliminary figures indicate that sales for the month increased 29.7 percent to $22,514,000, compared to $17,355,000 in May 1992. Five-month sales grew 20.1 percent to $46,862,000 from $39,025,000 in the first five months of 1992.
 Based on the preliminary sales report, comparable store sales increased 14.9 percent in May, a performance which resulted in a year-to-date comparable store increase of 5.3 percent.
 May is historically the largest single sales month of the year for Leslie's and includes the Memorial Day weekend, which many customers consider the beginning of their summer pool season, according to Brian P. McDermott, president and chief executive officer of Leslie's Poolmart.
 "May's strong sales are especially gratifying to us since they demonstrate, among other factors, the positive impact of our new store merchandising format and our new products program. The results also substantiate our earlier statements about March and April weather-related sales deferrals, especially since the May increase was achieved without benefit of unusually positive weather patterns," stated McDermott.
 Founded in 1963, Leslie's Poolmart is the country's leading specialty retailer of swimming pool supplies and related products. The company currently markets its products through 158 retail stores in 26 states and a nationwide mail-order catalog.
