TOANO, Va., Oct. 3, 2013

TOANO, Va., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL) has
helped create more than 50 clean and comfortable "home-away-from-homes" for
families, through its ongoing support for Ronald McDonald House Charities®
(RMHC®). Since 2007, the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in
North America has donated more than 250,000 square feet of flooring to Ronald
McDonald Houses, which offer a temporary home to families who have relocated
in order to better support and care for their child who is hospitalized or
receiving medical treatment.

Lumber Liquidators' latest support of RMHC included donating more than $8,000
in bamboo flooring to the Ronald McDonald House of Pittsburgh. It is the fifth
largest House in the nation, accommodating up to 60 families. The flooring was
installed in the community areas, where families can gather with others for
support and encouragement.   

William Sullivan, president and chief executive officer, Ronald McDonald
House-New York remarked, "Lumber Liquidators has met our needs by providing
this donation that's so valuable to us." Nancy Skochdopole, board member,
Ronald McDonald House-Dallas, adds, "Donations keep the door open at the
Ronald McDonald House®. We could not keep families together and do what we do
for them without donors like Lumber Liquidators."

Lumber Liquidators supports RMHC through its philanthropic program, Lay It
Forward. The program supports organizations that will benefit generations to
come, a vision that also drives the enduring quality of Lumber Liquidators'
products.

Robert M. Lynch, president and chief executive officer, commented, "Ronald
McDonald House Charities embodies our commitment to Lay It Forward because it
makes lasting impacts on the families it serves. We are pleased to have
donated beautiful hardwood floors to Ronald McDonald Houses, helping them
create an accommodating home for years to come. This strengthens families
during a challenging time and allows them to focus on creating a brighter
future for their child."

With hardwood flooring, a Ronald McDonald House addresses its objective of
maintaining a clean and safe environment for children who, in some cases, have
compromised or sensitive immune systems due to the medical procedures they're
undergoing, such as organ transplants and chemotherapy.

"When we built the space, the doctors requested that we have a cleanable
floor, which meant no carpet. So going with a hardwood floor was really
important," said Jill Cumnock, Chief Executive Officer, Ronald McDonald
House-Dallas. "The hardwood flooring from Lumber Liquidators allows us to keep
the homes as clean as possible – they're so easy to care for. Plus, the floors
add to the space with their coziness, warmth and certainly their durability."

In April, the National Wood Flooring Association recognized Lumber
Liquidators' support for RMHC by honoring the company with a 2013 Community
Service Award.
