ACQUERRE II/PET FOOD WAREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW MANAGEMENT POSITION

 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert Engelstad, chief executive officer of Pet Food Warehouse, today announced that Jeffrey Sell has been named chief operating officer of Pet Food Warehouse. Sell will oversee company operations and strategic development as the company continues its growth plans.
 Sell is moving to Minneapolis from Houston. He is a native of Minnesota and a graduate of the University of Minnesota. Sell spent the first 17 years of his business career with Target Stores, Inc., where he became their youngest store manager. He was subsequently promoted to a regional merchandiser and then to a district manager with responsibility for management of 15 stores. After leaving Target he held executive positions with Lee Wards and a 35-store retail office products chain.
 "Jeff's leadership capabilities and expertise in opening and managing new stores in a fast-paced growth situation makes him an ideal fit for the job," said Engelstad. "Our corporate strategy includes opening additional stores in the Twin Cities market as well as expanding into other major metropolitan markets."
 Acquerre II Corporation is a publicly held company which owns 100 percent of Pet Food Warehouse. Pet Food Warehouse is a rapidly growing multi-store retailer of pet food and supplies. Pet Food "superstores" are creating a new niche in pet food and supplies marketing. Operating in 17,000-20,000 square feet and carrying thousands of pet-related items, all major pet food brands are sold at warehouse prices. Pet Food Warehouse revenues were $11,000,000 in 1992; $7,000,000 in 1991.
