Birks & Mayors Announces A Corporate Name Change

MONTREAL, Sept. 30, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Birks & Mayors Inc. (the "Company" or "Birks & Mayors") (NYSE MKT:BMJ), announced that effective October 1, 2013, its corporate name will be changed to Birks Group Inc. and its ticker symbol will be changed to BGI.

Mr. Jean-Christophe Bédos, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The change in the corporate name to Birks Group Inc. better represents our corporate structure as the companies forming part of the Birks Group carry on business under the retail brands of "Maison Birks" across Canada, "Mayors" in the States of Florida and Georgia, and "Brinkhaus" in Vancouver, British Columbia and Calgary, Alberta. Signage reflecting this new trade name will be changed at our current retail stores over time while signage at our new stores already reflects this change."
