MACFRUGAL'S STORES DONATE 5 PERCENT TO HELP FEED THE NEEDY

 MACFRUGAL'S STORES DONATE 5 PERCENT TO HELP FEED THE NEEDY
 EL PASO, Texas, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, the holiday season will be brighter for more than 2,000 homeless people in the El Paso area thanks to MacFrugal's stores. MacFrugal's, which is owned by Pic 'N' Save Corp. (NASDAQ: PICN), is donating 5 percent of the sales receipts from midnight to 8 a.m. for five nights from Dec. 19 through Dec. 24.
 "Our business is good and our stores are so packed with shoppers this year that we wanted to give our customers the convenience of shopping without the crowds. So we've extended our hours to be open 24 hours for five nights only," said Len Williams, president and chief executive officer.
 "At the same time, we wanted to give something back to the community, so we decided these extended hours provided the perfect opportunity to donate 5 percent of our sales from midnight to 8 a.m. from Dec. 19 through Dec. 24."
 The Rescue Mission of El Paso will be the recipient of a check to feed Christmas dinner to over 2,000 of the homeless. "The mission fills a great need in the community, their work really comes from the heart," said Eileen Hupp, assistant vice president of marketing at Pic 'N' Save Corp.
 This same program is going on in two other markets. Pic 'N' Save Corp. is sponsoring the Salvation Army's Christmas Day Community Dinner in San Diego, at Golden Hall, to feed over 2,000 needy people. In Las Vegas, the Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas is helping Pic 'N' Save with the purchase and distribution, through 10 local charities, of more than 300 bags of groceries to needy families.
 Pic 'N' Save Corp. operates a chain of 194 retail stores in 12 states. These stores, which do business as Pic 'N' Save and MacFrugal's, feature a variety of first-quality general merchandise obtained through manufacturer close-outs, overruns, discontinued lines and packaging changes. An ever-changing assortment of merchandise is typically sold at 40 to 70 percent off regular retail prices.
