LEADING MIDWEST DEPARTMENT STORE COMPANY MARKETS WANG EXEC SERIES PCS
 LOWELL, Mass., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Wang laboratories Inc. (AMEX: WAN) and Dayton Hudson Corporation (NYSE: DH) announced today that Dayton Hudson's Department Store Division, one of the largest individual department store operations in the United States, has begun marketing EXEC series personal computers from Wang.
 The Department Store Division is an operating company of Dayton Hudson Corporation, one of America's largest general-merchandise retailers, with 62 stores in nine states. Wang EXEC series PCs are marketed in 16 Dayton and 19 Hudson stores in seven states.
 "We are committed to offering our customers the best merchandise available in any product category," said Mike Flynn, divisional merchandise manager for electronics at the department store division of Dayton Hudson Corporation. "All merchandise we sell must be of exceptional quality and value backed by good customer service. We believe Wang fits those criteria, and that the Wang EXEC Series PCs are a strong complement to our existing assortment of industry-leading office products."
 "We recognize that the department store division of Dayton Hudson Corporation has a long-standing history of innovative merchandising, exciting store environments, and dedication to the communities in which it operates," said Walter F. Foley, director, PC sales and marketing for the Mass Merchandising Channel, at Wang. "That tradition, plus a strong corporate commitment to quality and value, is going to make its stores a particularly attractive retail environment for our target audience -- people who need PCs for home-office or small business applications."
 All systems in the Wang EXEC Series are fully IBM-compatible and include at least two megabytes of system memory. All desktop EXEC systems come equipped with Microsoft's Windows 3.0 graphical environment, allowing users to take advantage of a wide array of the latest application software. Three models scheduled to be available in the spring will include a new audio integrated circuit built directly into the PC motherboard.
 MS-DOS 5.0 and the latest release of the Microsoft Works integrated software package for word processing, spreadsheet, graphics, database management, and communications are factory-installed on all desktop models. In addition, Microsoft Corporation's Productivity and Entertainment Packs are preinstalled. Each system comes with a keyboard, a mouse, and an installation video on VHS tape. For systems that do not come in bundled configurations, users can select from two optional 14-inch VGA color monitors.
 Wang EXEC system hardware is covered by a one-year limited factory warranty on parts and labor with one year of on-site service at the user's home or office. Wang also offers telephone support through a toll-free number.
 Wang Laboratories, Inc., headquartered in Lowell, Mass., serves customers in 130 countries with computer-based information processing systems including data, text, image and voice processing as well as telecommunications and networking products.
 The Dayton Hudson Corporation's Department Store Division is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., with regional offices in Detroit, Mich., and Chicago, Ill. The division has annual sales of $2.5 billion generated from over 13 million square feet of retail space.
