SALLY BEAUTY SUPPLY CELEBRATES HALF BILLION IN SALES WITH A BIG BASH

 DENTON, Texas, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Sally Beauty Supply, the world's largest distributor of professional hair and nail care products, is fast approaching the big "B" -- $1/2 billion in sales -- sometime between Aug. 25 and Aug. 31. That's a lot of shampoo and hair spray.
 The time and day, however, is yet to be determined. Michael Renzulli, CEO and president of Sally Beauty Supply, is counting every minute and dollar till the company reaches that $500 million mark. And when and where it happens will be part of the celebration!
 "We are having a lot of fun internally celebrating the event. A day's sales now are what the sales for the entire year were 20 years ago. Now, that's progress," says Renzulli.
 A company-wide contest is currently underway to guess the day, hour, minute and second when the sale is rung that pushes Sally Beauty over the half-billion mark. The winning guesser receives 500 silver dollars, second place wins 500 half-dollars, third place wins 500 quarters and fourth place wins 500 dimes. Plus, employees receive a commemorative key chain engraved, "Half A Billion Thanks!"
 In addition, Sally Beauty plans to ship Renzulli to the exact store that rings the sale that reaches or exceeds $500 million. The entire store staff will be treated to dinner with Renzulli, and the store's territory manager and district manager will man the registers while they celebrate.
 Sally Beauty is also preparing to share this momentous event with the City of Denton, where they are headquartered. Mayor Bob Castleberry, a big-time winner himself (he won the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes), will honor Sally's achievement by designating the day Sally reaches its mark as "Sally Beauty Day in Denton."
 "Sally Beauty Supply is very excited about celebrating our triumph with the City of Denton. Denton has played an instrumental part in Sally Beauty's prosperity," says Judy Cole, vice president of advertising at Sally Beauty Supply.
 To thank the City of Denton for their support, Sally Beauty is donating $5,000 to the city's Campus Theater, which has been designated for arts groups, launching the effort for additional fund raising for this Denton charity.
 Sally Beauty Supply has more than 1,100 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom, with plans calling for 19 more stores by October. Headquarters are 3900 Morse St. in Denton.
