The beauty-supply retailer said it used some of its cash on hand to pay for the deal.

Pottsville, Pa.-based Schoeneman’s fiscal 2009 sales are expected to be about $86 million to $89 million. It has 43 professional-only beauty-supply stores located in Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Northern Delaware and West Virginia, and more than 500 employees.

“We expect this combination to provide us with a greater opportunity to compete in Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia,” Beauty Systems group president John Golliher said in a statement.

Schoeneman will become part of the Beauty Systems Group, a Sally Beauty subsidiary.
