SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - Nexia Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NXHD), a diversified holding company, announces that its salon division's net sales for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 were $524,996 and $1,527,493, respectively.

Nexia's flagship salon located at 1298 South 900 East, Salt Lake City, Utah reported net sales of $1,408,741 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, which is an increase of $10,399 or 1% over the same period in 2008.

Mr. Surber, CEO of Nexia, pointed out, "The revenue trend has been upward as the year has progressed. Our salons were off to a weak start during the first quarter of 2009 but have shown continued improvement from that point forward. Our problem child continues to be our location in Bountiful. Our Bountiful location posted net sales of $118,752 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to $244,629 for the same period in 2008. Preliminary numbers for the fourth quarter 2009 show improvement in both retail and service sales system wide. Recovery of our Bountiful location will be swift if we are able to hire a few additional stylists with good books of clientele in 2010."
