 SUNSHINE-JR. STORES PRESIDENT AND CEO TO RETIRE
 PANAMA CITY, Fla., March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- After 25 years of


service at Sunshine-Jr. Stores, Inc.

Her retirement as president of Sunshine- Jr. will be effective April 6, 1992. Lewis-Brent joined the company in 1967 and served in various positions before assuming the presidency in 1982.
 Lewis-Brent stated, "It has been my intention to select a replacement for myself for some time now and the board supports my choice for the election of Lenard J. Miller as president. Len and I have worked together for the past several years, and with the implementation of the company's new marketing plan resulting in substantial increased sales, the time seems right to turn operational control over to Mr. Miller." Upon his election, Miller commented, "I am very pleased to be elected president of the company and to the board of directors and appreciate the confidence shown in me by Ms. Brent and the board."
 Sales for 1991, as previously reported, were $217.7 million compared to $202.4 million from the previous year. Fourth quarter earnings showed a marked improvement from the previous two years' fourth quarter losses. The company operates 290 convenience stores in five southeastern states in addition to four supermarkets in Bay County, Fla.
 In addition, Leona J. Lewis, 83, chairman of the board, announced her retirement, effective May 8, 1992. J. Floyd Glisson of St. Petersburg, Fla., was elected to fill her unexpired term.
