MAIL BOXES ETC. EXTENDS PACK AND SHIP OPERATIONS

 SAN DIEGO, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Mail Boxes Etc.(R) (NASDAQ: MAIL) (MBE) will extend its pack and ship operations to include no-limit shipping at MBE Centers nationally, it was announced today by A.W. (Tony) DeSio, president and chief executive officer of Mail Boxes Etc.
 MBE's new "Big or Small, We Ship It All(TM)" program will enable each Mail Boxes Etc. location to pack and ship virtually any item anywhere in the world.
 "With no-limit shipping, MBE Centers can provide consumers with a convenient `total packaging and shipping solution,'" said DeSio. "The variety of items we can now ship opens a new market for MBE Centers."
 MBE's no-limit shipping enables consumers and businesses to send large and/or heavy packages that exceed United Parcel Service's size or 70-pound weight limit. In addition, it provides such special services as custom packing and crating and local pickup and delivery, if requested.
 "The new program will allow our customers to ship large household items such as a refrigerator or business equipment such as a copier to any point on the map," explains DeSio, "and still receive the same professional and reliable service provided at every Mail Boxes Etc. location."
 Mail Boxes Etc. is the world's largest franchisor of neighborhood retail service centers specializing in postal, business and communications services. MBE makes its network available to national and international companies as an alternative to establishing or expanding their own service distribution systems. There are now more than 2,000 Mail Boxes Etc. Centers operating in the United States and internationally. Each Mail Boxes Etc. franchise is independently owned and operated.
