Farm King Stores to Commence Winning Colours® Stain Remover Sales

Midwest Retailer in Illinois and Iowa Serves Rural Heartland

BARRIE, ON--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - Winning Brands Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WNBD) (FRANKFURT: WMU) (www.WinningBrands.ca) reports that sales of Winning Colours® Stain Remover by Farm King Supply, Inc. of Macomb, Illinois will begin soon following an opening order placed by the midwestern retailer May 1st. Farm King stores have large, well stocked Paint Departments. A photo tour of that department is now on-line: http://www.farmking.com/Images/Storeimg/Paint%20and%20Sundries/pages/DSC00811.htm. Farm King has served its midwestern customers since 1959, now employing nearly 400 people carrying a wide range of products of interest to farmers and residents of communities in rural areas.

Winning Brands' Senior V.P. Lorne Kelly points out that the large Farm King stores are an example of the regional store groups that are so easily overlooked by vendors who are drawn only to the largest national retail banners. "It is vital that Winning Brands establishes and maintains mutually beneficial relationships with the large number of independent retailers who are so close to their consumers in regional cities across America. Farm King is a well run, local powerhouse of merchandising to an important segment of the market for Winning Colours® Stain Remover. Local doesn't always mean small. The Farm King stores are substantial," Kelly notes.
