Atlanta,  Georgia, December 2, 2013 - HAVERTYS (NYSE: HVT and HVT.A) reports its
total  written  business  for  the  fourth  quarter  2013 through November is up
approximately 7.9 % over the 13.9 % increase that had been achieved for the same

repositioned stores."

Havertys  will  open  its  first  location  in  a high density area in the third
quarter  of 2014.  The 19,000-selling-square-foot store  will be in the Buckhead
Square  shopping  center  in  Atlanta,  GA  on  the corner of Peachtree Road and
