PHILADELPHIA-AREA KMART PARTICIPATES IN NATION'S LARGEST BIRTHDAY PARTY;
 SPECIAL GUEST -- MICHAEL ANDRETTI
 TROY, Mich., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia will "have its cake and eat it too" when Kmart hosts the nation's largest birthday party on Sunday, March 1. Kmart Corporation (NYSE: KM), its 300,000 associates and their customers will celebrate 30 years of service in over 2,300 Kmart stores across the country.
 Philadelphia will play a special part in the celebration when 1991 PPG Indy Car Champion Michael Andretti participates in a birthday ceremony at the Kmart store at 1133 York Road, in Warminster, Pa., at 4 p.m. Andretti will sign autographs from 5-6 p.m. Other Philadelphia- area Kmart stores will also host special parties.
 Andretti is known for being the fastest -- and bravest -- Indy Car racer. According to Bob Markus of the Chicago Tribune, "Andretti is the most exciting driver in America." Andretti had 22 Indy Car wins between 1986 and 1991 and he is the 1991 CART/PPG Indy Car World Series Champion.
 From Seattle to Savannah, the birthday celebration will officially begin with thousands of customers and associates singing "Happy Birthday" to the American retailing institution. At the Warminster store, Longstreseth Elementary School Choir will lead customers in the sing-a-long. Immediately following the sing-a-long, birthday cake will be available for customers.
 To mark its 30th birthday, Kmart will introduce a special advance edition of David Cohen's newest book "America: Then & Now." Cohen co-produced the successful "Day in the Life" series of photography books. The special advance edition will be available exclusively in Kmart stores. "America: Then & Now" features vintage photographs of America's life and times compared side by side with shots of the same subjects today.
 During the Warminster ceremony, Kmart will make a donation of the books to local charitable groups.
 Tom Watkins, senior vice president of store operations, will also participate in the special ceremony.
 Kmart Corporation operates nearly 4,000 retail outlets in all 50 states in the United States and in Puerto Rico and Canada. Kmart, currently operating 2,375 Kmart stores, is also the parent company for Pay Less Drug Stores, Builders Square, Waldenbooks, PACE Membership Warehouse, The Sports Authority and OfficeMax.
