PIC 'N' SAVE TO DONATE RECEIPTS

 PIC 'N' SAVE TO DONATE RECEIPTS
 PHOENIX, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Pic 'N' Save, a leading national


retailer of close-out merchandise, is changing its name to Mac Frugal's -- and to mark the event, is donating 5 percent of sales in its 11 Arizona stores to The Salvation Army.
 To officially introduce the new name, celebrations are slated simultaneously at all Arizona stores from 9 a.m., Friday, Feb. 28, through 7 p.m., Sunday March 1. Activities include free gift certificate giveaways, refreshments, clowns and contests.
 In the Phoenix area, representatives from the retailer will "cruise" around town in a 1958 Ford Fairlane with actors and actresses dressed in '50s finery and handing out dollar-off certificates.
 "We are delighted that this famous chain has chosen The Salvation Army as its beneficiary," stated Lt. Col. Mervyn L. Morelock, divisional commander, Southwest Division. Eileen Hupp, the assistant vice president/marketing director, said the Southern California-based Pic 'N' Save singled out The Salvation Army because the organization is "a most credible and trustworthy charity, with never a hint of impropriety."
 Currently operating in 12 states from California to Florida, Pic 'N' Save has grown to 194 stores employing more than 6,000 people. The company's headquarters are located in Dominguez, Calif.
 Arizona stores are located in Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Peoria, Tucson and Yuma.
