Big Apple Worldwide Subsidiary Announces Agreement With a Major Paint and Wallcovering Retailer to Place "No More Books™" Kiosks in All of Their Locations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - Big Apple Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BPWI) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Big Apple Wallcovering, Inc., has entered into a 2 year sales agreement with a major Paint and Wallcovering retail outlet to place its "No More Books™" kiosks in all locations of this prestigious chain. The agreement will potentially make Big Apple Wallcovering the exclusive seller of wallcoverings in each of the stores, possibly leading to an agreement for all of its retail outlets nationwide.

The kiosks will revolutionize the way consumers shop for wallcoverings, replacing the heavy, space-consuming sample books with a Web-based system powered by a database of thousands of wallcovering options from numerous manufacturers. Consumers will be able to order free samples and have them shipped to their residence for easy matching and comparing inside the home.

According to Business Trend Analysts, Inc., wallcovering sales totaled nearly $8 billion in 2005, and Big Apple Wallcovering hopes to make an impact on the market by placing its "No More Books™" kiosks in numerous retail outlets throughout North America in the coming year.

"This is a monumental accomplishment in the wallcovering industry. This agreement makes us the exclusive source for wallcoverings at a major retail outlet and we envision an agreement with several other retailers in the near future," stated Neal Jablon, president of Big Apple Worldwide, Inc.
