FRED MEYER: REST OF BELLEVUE FOOD DEPARTMENT REOPENS ONE DAY EARLIER

FRED MEYER: REST OF BELLEVUE FOOD DEPARTMENT REOPENS ONE DAY EARLIER
 PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred Meyer (NASDAQ: MEYR) announced today that the rest of its food department, including the bakery, fish market and service deli, will reopen to the public at 7 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 23, a day earlier than planned.
 Fred Meyer had announced a three-phase, two-month reopening plan for its Bellevue, Wash., store after the store was closed on Monday, July 27, when a portion of the roof collapsed.
 The Bellevue Fred Meyer store is comprised of two separate buildings built at different times by different companies and leased by Fred Meyer in 1975 to create a single store. The damage occurred in the building that houses the store's nonfood products. The failure of a hanger assembly caused one 51-foot wood beam to fall.
 Subsequent inspection of the store resulted in the development of a three-phase program to repair all damage caused by the accident and reinforce the roof support structure of the entire nonfood building to assure safety and meet the current uniform building code requirements.
 Phase I involved reopening the building that houses most of the food department by Aug. 5. A thorough inspection of that building showed that it is structurally sound and all beams and beam hangers are safe.
 Phase II primarily focused on repairing the area of the store damaged by the fallen beam. Included were the service bakery, service fish and service deli sections of the food department, along with three tenant areas inside the east entrance. Also included in Phase II was the reopening of two tenant spaces inside the west entrance. Phase II was originally scheduled for completion by Aug. 24.
 Phase III is proceeding on schedule thus far. It involves reinforcing all remaining support beam hanger assemblies in the nonfood portion of the Bellevue store by mid-September.
