 DETROIT-AREA KMART PARTICIPATES IN NATION'S LARGEST BIRTHDAY PARTY;
 SPECIAL GUESTS -- JACLYN SMITH AND BARRY SANDERS
 TROY, Mich., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit 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 more than 2,300 Kmart stores across the country.
 Detroit will play a special part in the celebration when actress Jaclyn Smith and Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders participate in a birthday ceremony at the Kmart store at 26200 Greenfield in Oak Park, Mich., at 2 p.m. Smith will pose for Polaroid photographs with customers from 3-4 p.m. and Sanders will pass out autographs from 5-6 p.m. Other Detroit-area Kmart stores will also host special parties.
 Smith, repeatedly voted as one of America's most beautiful women, is also the epitome of the '90s woman. In addition to acting and being a full-time mom, she is also a spokesperson for Kmart and Max Factor. Smith joined Kmart in 1985 with the introduction of a signature line of sports wear. Now, more than 22 million women are wearing her clothing, and she has expanded her collections to include jewelry, hosiery, lingerie and handbags.
 Sanders is known for his outstanding performance as the Detroit Lions running back. Sanders' remarkable football skills and record- breaking feats helped the Detroit Lions capture the 1991 NFC Central Division championship.
 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 Oak Park store, Heavenly Angels will lead customers in the sing-a-long. Immediately following the birthday sing-a-long, free cake will be available to 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 Oak Park ceremony, Kmart will make a donation of the books to local charitable groups.
 Joe Antonini, chairman, president and chief executive officer, will 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.
