 MONRO MUFFLER BRAKE, INC. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER SALES UP
 11.4 PERCENT AND NET INCOME UP 9.4 PERCENT
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Monro Muffler Brake, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNRO), which operates 167 undercar repair shops, today announced a 9.4 percent increase in net income and a 11.4 percent increase in sales for its first quarter ended June 30, 1992.
 Monro's fiscal 1993 first quarter net income was $2,121,000, or $.31 per share, up from $1,939,000, or $.29 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 1992.
 Net sales were $21,528,000 this quarter compared with $19,327,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 1991. The sales increase was due to a comparable shop sales increase of 3.7 percent and an increase in sales of approximately $1,500,000 for shops opened since the beginning of fiscal 1992.
 Sales at shops in the Pittsburgh market have been adversely affected by local conditions including a newspaper strike which began in May of 1992. This was partially offset by sales at the 18 new stores opened in fiscal 1992 which have been stronger than planned.
 The company plans to open 24 shops in fiscal 1993 (of which six were opened during the quarter).
 Monro operates a chain of shops providing automotive undercar repair services in the United States. The company currently operates 167 shops in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Connecticut, Massachusetts, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland. Monro's shops provide a full range of services for mufflers and exhaust systems, brakes, steering, suspension and wheel alignment.
