STAGE II ENTERS CANADIAN MARKET WITH ACQUISITION OF WOODY SPORTS

 NEW YORK, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Stage II Apparel Corp. (AMEX: SA), one of the nation's leading suppliers of brand name casual apparel to mass market and department store retailers, has purchased an 80 percent stake in Woody's Sports, a Canadian supplier of men's and boys' activewear.
 Based in Winnipeg, Canada, Woody Sports holds Canadian licenses with the CFL, Major League Baseball, NHL, and many U.S. colleges. Woody sells its products to sporting goods stores, specialty, and department stores, with much of its merchandise carried in stadium shops.
 The new subsidiary will remain in Canada operating under the same name, and founder Jeff Thompson will remain as a principal.
 "The acquisition of Woody Sports is part of an ongoing expansion in our roster of licensed products," said Stage II Chairman and CEO Jack Clark. "This also allows us to extend our distribution base to the Canadian marketplace."
 Clark said that Stage II will now source additional products for Woody Sports and will use Woody to distribute several of Stage II's U.S. licensed brands into Canada.
 Stage II Apparel Corp. is a publicly traded $75 million company. With domestic and off-shore manufacturing facilities, Stage II focuses on activewear and sports wear for men and boys.
