Pacific Northern, Inc. Reports Success of its
Promotional and Retail Products Division

CARROLLTON, Texas (March 15, 2006) – Pacific Northern, Inc., ( the industry leader in custom jewelry display production and design, reports a stellar 31 percent increase in sales of its Promotional and Retail Products Division for the fiscal year ended 2005.

“Last year was very successful for our division but we feel it is only the beginning,” Sr. Vice President of the Promotional and Retail Products Division Michael Oberman said. “Many efforts were put forth into the development of relationships with several major clients and we are confident they will come to fruition and result into new high-volume point of sale and specialty packaging projects.”

The experience from previous years with large volume packaging production and distribution also solidified client relationships and brought in a variety of high volume projects. The Point of Purchase packaging programs for the Zales Piercing Pagoda Division and Fine Jewelry Packaging programs for Sears/Kmart are two notable projects that contributed to the overall success of the Division.

The Promotional and Retail Products Account Managers were also driving forces behind the sales increase. They continued to be heavily involved with jewelry vendor clients, developing custom promotions, gift with purchase and specialty/branded packaging. Customer development in the Gift Industry resulted in its best volume to date as well as opened doors to other market segments.

“We look forward to continuing our successes in 2006 and anticipate another significant increase in sales and profit,” Oberman said.
