 EXTON, Pa., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Electronics Inc.


(NASDAQ-NMS: INEL), announced today that its chain of 102 BizMart supercenters increased year-over-year cash register sales 63 percent for the quarter and 40 percent for the 4-week period ending Oct. 31.
 Cash register sales rose to $181 million from $111 million for the quarter and to $49 million from $35 million for the same month a year ago.
 Oct. 31 concluded Intelligent's third fiscal quarter, with BizMart cash registers posting 18 percent quarterly same store sales increases, compared to 25 percent increases during the prior-year quarter. Same store sales for the month grew 2 percent vs. 27 percent a year ago. Sixty-five BizMart supercenters had been opened a year or more and were included in the calculation, which reflects all company-owned and franchisee sales through BizMart's registers.

During October a year ago, the chain enhanced and re-grand-opened 24 supercenters, featuring computer departments with Apple, Compaq, Hewlett-Packard, and IBM products. By this time last year, BizMart had enhanced 54 of its 69 supercenters. During October, BizMart's comparable store sales of traditional office products lines increased 7 percent.
