RELIABLE OFFICE SUPERSTORE SLATED FOR MANKATO; STRONG CONSUMER REACTION BRINGS THIRD STORE TO STATE

 CHICAGO, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Reliable Office Superstore, a major seller of office products, announced today it plans to open a 12,000- square-foot superstore in Mankato, Minn. Scheduled to debut in August 1993, the Mankato store will be the Chicago-based company's third in Minnesota.
 Located in the River Hills Mall, 1850 Adams St., the superstore will provide a wide selection of business products and supplies with guaranteed lowest pricing.
 "Since first launched two years ago, consumer reaction to our Reliable Office Superstores has been very encouraging," said Merrill Zenner, Reliable chairman. "We're moving ahead aggressively and Mankato, which will have our third store in the state after Rochester and St. Cloud, is a strategic location for us."
 Reliable selected the Mankato market for several reasons, according to Zenner.
 "There are a large number of small- and medium-size businesses in the area, and that means a strong demand for office products and supplies," he said. "In addition, many of those businesses already know the Reliable name because they've found value and quality in our catalogs for years."
 Reliable Office Superstore provides access to approximately 7,000 brand name office supplies, paper products, furniture, computer equipment and electronics. The company also is an authorized dealer of IBM computers and accessories.
 "We offer almost everything a business needs to operate on a day-to- day basis," said Zenner, "from the coffee and cleaning supplies, to the computers and paper clips."
 The store will provide same day delivery for orders placed by phone or fax by 10 a.m. to addresses within a 15-mile radius.
 Reliable Office Superstores also offer a free Valucard customer program providing special promotions, phone in/pick up service and open account billing for qualified business accounts.
 In addition, the superstore will serve all consumers with a wide range of school and drafting supplies, gifts, decorative accessories and tax preparation materials.
 Chicago-based Reliable Office Superstores was created in 1991 to meet a growing demand for value-priced office supplies and business products at the retail level. The company currently operates stores in eight states.
