KMART ACQUIRES PHAR-MOR CUSTOMER PRESCRIPTION RECORDS

 TROY, Mich., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Kmart Corporation (NYSE: KM) announced its acquisition of Phar-Mor prescription files for customers in 24 new locations, effective immediately. In select cities in Florida, Arizona, Georgia, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Texas, Nevada and North Carolina where Phar-Mor stores have closed, customers will find their files in the care of Kmart pharmacists.
 "In total, Kmart has acquired prescription files from 47 former Phar-Mor locations," said Kevin Browett, Kmart divisional vice president, Pharmacy, Health and Beauty Care. "Customers are discovering the added convenience of having their prescriptions filled by our professional pharmacists, while shopping at Kmart."
 Kmart is among the largest clients of the top pharmaceutical manufacturers in the nation, using companies such as Eli Lilly, Bristol- Myers Squibb and Merck to fill prescriptions. At Kmart pharmacies, customers will find computerized prescription service, convenient one- stop shopping, quality generic drugs and competitive prices.
 "Phar-Mor customers will be pleased to know that at a Kmart store, if a prescription is not ready when promised, it's free," said Browett.
 Kmart's current refurbishment of its pharmacies adds to the convenient shopping experience. Bigger windows and drop-off windows designed at eye-level height provide quicker service and ensure pharmacists are as close to the customer as possible.
 Kmart's 1,540 pharmacies dispense more than 53 million prescriptions per year, illustrating the trust that consumers have in quality and price.
 Kmart Corporation serves America with over 4,000 retail outlets in all 50 states in the United States and in Puerto Rico, Canada, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Kmart, currently operating 2,409 Kmart stores, is also the parent company for PACE Membership Warehouse, Builders Square, PayLess Drug Stores, Waldenbooks, The Sports Authority, OfficeMax and Borders.
