  OLR Supports Store Growth at Gordmans

The Omaha-based home furnishings retailer is poised to continue on a
successful path to expanding its store base by nearly 40 percent over a
three-year period, including opening ten new stores in fiscal 2013.

OMAHA, Neb. -- June 24, 2013

Gordmans Stores, Inc. (Nasdaq:GMAN) is a chain of Midwestern department stores
which carry a large assortment of name brand apparel for all ages,
accessories, footwear, gifts, designer fragrances, fashion jewelry, accent
furniture, home fashions and more, at savings up to 60 percent off department
and specialty store prices.

CEO Jeff Gordman identified strong potential for expansion from the Midwest
into under-served markets across the central United States. It was apparent
the company's legacy IT systems would not support such growth.

After a thorough selection process, Gordmans opted to move forward with the
Oracle^® Retail platform. With a reputation for rapid scalability, the
solution set included the broad retail functionality Gordmans needed to
enhance its capabilities, including core merchandising foundation, inventory
management, pricing, retail financials, warehouse receiving, and sales
auditing. To guide the technology transformation, Gordmans chose OLR as its
systems integration and support partner. OLR’s consultants worked with
Gordmans internal IT team to clearly map system requirements and tailor a
first class solution to support current needs and the vision for the future.

"OLR provided knowledgeable and engaged consultants," stated Richard Heyman,
CIO at Gordmans. "Many companies profess that they develop partnerships with
their clients; OLR actually delivered on that promise."

From the start, OLR played a vital role in helping Gordmans achieve its
business goals. With a clearly defined yet flexible methodology distilled from
years of experience in Oracle Retail programs, OLR offered the tools,
collateral, and templates to support a smooth and efficient transition. The
engagement spanned Gordmans’ entire initiative, from initial analysis and
project scoping to post go-live transition support. Today, OLR provides
assistance with skilled application resources that enable the retailer to
focus on key strategic initiatives and benefit from OLR’s ability to deliver
ongoing improvements alongside day-to-day systems support.

OLR is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork.
