FARMINGTON, TN--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - Bell Buckle Holdings (PINKSHEETS: BLLB) announced today it has exercised its option to buy both a 15,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and the surrounding land in order to enhance production and efficiency and to enable them to continue their record growth. The announcement comes on the heels of several massive orders by retail giants Wal-Mart, TJ Maxx and Marshalls and clears the way for Bell Buckle to continue to grow their business. The company was at or near 100% capacity in their current facility.

"This is the logical next step in our development in light of the new distribution opportunities and the rapid growth we are seeing at this time," says CEO Bradford Simmons. "We now can concern ourselves with continuing to build distribution and get our award winning products in the hands of consumers, without worrying about not being able to satisfy demand. This new facility gives us the green light to continue our record-breaking growth, while increasing our efficiencies."
