BAW, Inc. Contracts Marketing Firm to Prepare for Major Rollout of Kiosks

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Big Apple Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BPWW) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Big Apple Wallcovering, Inc., has contracted a marketing firm to support its "No More Books" kiosk program. The Company has enlisted MarketNet Services, LLC, a marketing technology and services firm, to provide warehousing, fulfillment services and inventory management in support of the kiosks. The kiosks will be placed in major retail outlets throughout the U.S. and will provide exclusive one-stop-shop wallcovering ordering services.

The kiosks will begin being placed in stores this summer with the goal of revolutionizing the way consumers shop for wallcoverings. The Big Apple kiosks will replace the heavy, space-consuming sample books with a web-based system powered by a database of thousands of wallcovering options from numerous manufacturers. Customers will be able to order samples free of charge and have them shipped via USPS priority mail for easy matching and comparing inside the home.

"We chose MarketNet for their ability to deliver a comprehensive service that works in conjunction with our needs and those of the retail outlets. The kiosks will save valuable selling space and allow employees more time to devote to creating a unique experience for the customer," stated Bill Byron, Vice President of Big Apple Wallcovering, Inc.
