Citi Trends Inc announced that Elizabeth R. Feher has joined the Company, effective immediately, as Executive Vice President (EVP) and Chief Merchandising Officer (CMO). She replaces George A. Bellino, the Company's President and Chief Merchandising Officer, who had previously announced his decision to retire. His retirement will be effective April 4, 2008.

Ms. Feher joins Citi Trends after serving as Senior Vice President - Ladies Apparel, Intimate and Kids and a member of the Executive Committee at Value City Department Stores since 2005. Prior to that time, she was with Bon Ton Stores from 1994 to 2005 in senior apparel merchandising roles, such as Senior Vice President and General Merchandise Manager and Vice President and Divisional Merchandise Manager of Ready-To-Wear, Ladies Casual and Career Sportswear.

Ms. Feher began her merchandising career in 1980 as a management trainee with Hess's Department Stores and added increasing responsibilities as first a buyer and then as Vice President and Divisional Merchandise Manager.

Ed Anderson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Citi Trends, commented, "During our national search, we have focused on the candidates that first and foremost had extensive experience and talent as an apparel merchant. We also wanted someone with a background in the department store and off-price markets who possesses the leadership and communication skills to guide a very talented merchandising team.

Beth fulfills all of these requirements. She has demonstrated throughout her 28-year career in apparel merchandising the ability to develop teams and strategies to achieve sales and margin goals. We look forward to her contributions in leading our merchandise team."
