Conn’s Celebrates Continued Growth in Colorado with Grand Opening of Fifth Denver-Area Store

The Company Has Generated Almost 200 Jobs in Colorado with Addition
of New Thornton Store

THE WOODLANDS, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Furniture and specialty home goods retailer Conn’s, Inc. (NASDAQ: CONN)
will celebrate the grand opening of its new Thornton, Colorado store on
Saturday, September 26. The new store represents the Company’s ongoing
growth in Colorado, with it being the fifth Conn’s HomePlus in the
Denver area and the seventh in the state. The grand opening event will
feature gift card giveaways, storewide promotions and an opportunity for
local customers to enter to win a $10,000 shopping spree.

Conn’s HomePlus offers high-quality and affordable products,
specializing in furniture and mattresses, home appliances, consumer
electronics and home office products.

The new 46,000 square-foot Conn’s HomePlus at 550 E. 102nd
Avenue in Thornton has created 27 local jobs for the area — driving the
Company’s job creation count to almost 200 across its seven Colorado
stores. The new store is part of Conn’s robust national growth strategy
to open nearly 20 stores during a 12-month period (February
2015–February 2016). The Company currently has more than 90 stores in 12
states and will open their 100th store later this year.

The core of Conn’s continued growth and success is its in-house credit
program called “YES MONEY®,” which offers consumers
the chance to purchase high quality goods at low monthly payments they
can afford, even if they have been turned down elsewhere. The ability to
make aspirational items affordable has led to more than 90 percent of
surveyed customers stating that they would recommend Conn’s to family
and friends.

“Opening our fifth store in the Denver area reflects the positive
reception we’ve received in this market and reinforces the popularity of
our YES MONEY in-store credit program,” said David Trahan, President of
Conn’s Retail Division. “We work hard to give our customers smart
financing options through YES MONEY, and this program is driving our
growth not only in Denver but across the country as well.”

Customers can enter to win the $10,000 shopping spree at all seven
Colorado Conn’s locations now through October 30.
