CLEVELAND-AREA KMART PARTICIPATES IN NATION'S LARGEST BIRTHDAY PARTY;
 SPECIAL GUEST -- MARIO ANDRETTI
 TROY, Mich., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland 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.
 Cleveland will play a special part in the celebration when all-time racing legend Mario Andretti participates in a birthday ceremony at the Kmart store at 17840 Bagley Road in Middleburg Heights at 4 p.m. Andretti will sign autographs from 5-6 p.m. Other Cleveland-area Kmart stores will also host special parties.
 Andretti is known as the "greatest race driver of all time" and describes himself as an "eternal optimist." Andretti was the first man to win both the Indy Car and World Formula One Championships, and the first to win the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 championships.
 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 Middleburg Heights Store, Bera High School Chorale will lead customers in the sing-a-long. Free birthday cake will be available to customers immediately following the sing-a-long.
 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 Middleburg Heights ceremony, Kmart will make a donation of the books to Mayor David Leonard, Mayor S. Trupo, Mayor W. Ehrnfelt, Strongsville High School, Mid Park High School, and Bera High School.
 Bill Underwood, senior vice president of general merchandise, will also participate in the special ceremony.
