 SUNGLASS HUT CORPORATION ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF SUN MARK
 MIAMI, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunglass Hut Corporation, the world's largest sunglass retailer, announced today that it has acquired all 135 stores of the second largest sunglass specialty chain -- Sun Mark, based in Dallas. Sun Mark operates stores under the names SunGear, The Sunglass Co. and Le Visage. This raises the total number of Sunglass Hut stores to approximately 540 locations across the U.S. and Canada. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
 "We believe the acquisition of the Sun Mark chain is a winning combination," said Jack Chadsey, president and chief executive officer of Sunglass Hut. "Both operations have a long and proud history of serving upscale, fashion savvy sunglass customers. Now we can offer Sun Mark and Sunglass Hut customers the very best sunglasses in several new markets and locations."
 Since 1971, Sunglass Hut has led the industry with brand-name sunglass collections, optical-quality lenses and highly trained sales associates. Stores range in size from 200 to 400 square feet for kiosks and approximately 400 to 600 square feet for in-line stores. The company started 20 years ago with a single kiosk in Miami's Dadeland Mall.
