GOTTSCHALKS ANNOUNCES APRIL SALES RESULTS

 GOTTSCHALKS ANNOUNCES APRIL SALES RESULTS
 FRESNO, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Gottschalks Inc. (NYSE: GOT)


announced that April 1992 sales increased 10.1 percent to $22.7 million from $20.7 million for the prior April. Same store sales for the April period increased 2.5 percent.
 For the 13-week quarterly period, company sales increased 6.8 percent to $67.2 million from $62.9 million for the prior year quarterly period. Same store sales for the 13-week period declined 1.7 percent.
 "April sales were much stronger due to the change in the Easter holiday," stated Joe Levy, chairman. "Apparel sales in juniors and childrens were especially good. Our April sales results were negatively impacted by both the recent earthquakes in Palm Springs and Eureka and by the outbreak of violence in Los Angeles. While we had no stores damaged from either of these events, we did have to briefly close the Palm Springs and Eureka stores as a result of the earthquakes. Also, we closed several of our stores early during the past week because of the unrest and uncertainty generated by the Los Angeles violence. As a result, our quarterly sales were slightly below plan," added Levy.
 Sales results are summarized as follows:
