CompUSA INC. TO EXCEED ONE MILLION SQUARE FEET OF RETAIL SPACE WITH THREE COMPUTER SUPERSTORE OPENINGS SCHEDULED IN MARCH

 DALLAS, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- CompUSA Inc. (NYSE: CPU), America's largest computer superstore retailer, today announced that its gross retail square footage will exceed one million square feet with the planned openings in March of three new computer superstores.
 The openings will increase CompUSA's total to 43 stores in 28 metropolitan markets from coast to coast. The new stores include the second superstore in the Atlanta market and the first superstores in the Baltimore, and Dayton, Ohio, metropolitan markets.
 The 25,400-square-foot Marietta superstore will be the second new location opened in the Atlanta market, following the recent relocation of the original Atlanta superstore. The Glen Burnie, Md., computer superstore, with 26,800 square feet of retail space, marks CompUSA's entrance to the Baltimore market. CompUSA's second Ohio store is scheduled to open near the end of March in the Dayton suburb of Miamisburg and will have 24,800 square feet of retail space.
 "It is fitting that CompUSA will reach this important milestone of one million square feet of gross retail space with the opening of our second store in Atlanta, the city where our original computer superstore was opened in April 1988," said Nathan Morton, president and chief executive officer of CompUSA. "As we are not yet represented in several large cities, and understored in virtually every market we currently serve, we will continue to add back stores in existing markets while continuing our rapid store rollout in new markets."
 CompUSA Computer Superstores offer more than 5,000 products, including microcomputer hardware, software, accessories and related items, at deep-discount prices to retail, business, government and institutional customers. The superstores also maintain full-service technical departments and classroom training facilities.
