Sears Employee to Walk Down the Aisle In Wedding Ceremony at Odessa Sears Store:

First In-Store Wedding In Company's 115-Year History

  What:     Sears associate Veronica Olinske will wed Kenneth Robinson at
            the Odessa Sears store in honor of her fellow associates who
            have become her "extended family."  Olinske, who works in the
            appliance department, will walk down the escalator into the
            patio furniture department where she and Robinson will exchange
            vows among her friends and family.  A mother of three, Olinske
            will be given away by her oldest son and her younger son will be
            the ringbearer.  Robinson has two children who also will attend
            and participate in the ceremony.

  When:     Friday, July 6, 2001; 5:30 p.m. CDT

  Where:    Odessa Sears store
            4101 E. 42nd Street

  Why:      Two years ago, Olinske saw Sears featured in Working Mother
            magazine's issue on Top Places for Working Mothers to Work.  A
            single mother, Olinske appreciated the benefits and the
            environment that Sears offers its associates, and she applied
            for a job in her local store's electronics department.  Olinske
            has worked at Sears for two years and has grown to love her
            fellow associates as if they were her extended family.  She felt
            strongly that she wanted her wedding to take place at her
            "second home" among the people closest to her.  Sears store
            general manager John Marshall and the rest of the Odessa Sears
            store associates were quick to organize a ceremony and a
            reception in Olinske's honor.  Sears Portrait Studio is donating
            its services for Olinske's wedding photos.

            For more information, contact Sears store general manager
            John Marshall at (915) 368-8543.  Photographers and camera crews
