Seaway Valley Capital Corporation Subsidiary Announces New Liquidation Center

Wide Variety of Merchandise to Be Available in State Street Building

GOUVERNEUR, NY--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - Seaway Valley Capital Corporation (OTCBB: SWVL), a diversified holding company with its subsidiary, Hackett's Stores, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HCKE), today announced the opening of its new "Liquidation Center" in the former power sports building on State Street in Ogdensburg.

The new Liquidation Center will sell a wide variety of merchandise, including surplus, and products purchased exclusively for the new business. The Center will also sell excess Hackett's inventory. Auctions will be held from time to time to facilitate sales of certain items.

Herbert Becker, Vice President and COO, stated, "Our new Liquidation Center shall be an exciting new facet of Hackett's overall operations, and management looks forward to building this business and, perhaps, eventually extending elements of it throughout the entire organization." Mr. Becker continued, "As part of this new strategy, we have decided to structurally realign certain operations, and this realignment will result in the consolidation and closure of our Potsdam location. As we begin the rebuilding process management feels that it is more prudent to invest our resources in locations not competing with our flagship Ogdensburg location, and, of course, the new Hackett's Liquidation Center. Considering the Potsdam location had the fewest number of months left on its lease and does compete with other St. Lawrence County Hackett's locations, the decision was made to consolidate it with the other stores."

Hackett's new Liquidation Center will focus on offering one-time deep discounted deals based on merchandise purchased through close-out sales, markdowns of overstocked items, and inventory from other business liquidations. Mr. Becker added, "The objective of our new Liquidation Center will be to obtain and provide premier quality merchandise for the treasure hunter."
