Sandström On TV Company Announces Double Digit Revenue Gains for Phoenix Stores

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2007 -- Sandström On TV company, a wholly owned subsidiary of TradeShow Marketing Company, Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: TSHO), a specialty retail and product development company, is pleased to announce double digit increases for its Phoenix stores for the month of April.

There was a combined comparable store increase over April 2006 of 19.9%. Purchased less than two years ago by Sandstrom, the stores have been in existence for approximately ten years. Sales increased over April 2006 by 11 percent for its Paradise Valley location and 28 percent for its Arrowhead store.

This news follows on similar double digit increases in March of this year. Sandstrom sales increased over March 2006 by 19 percent from its Paradise Valley location and 13 percent from its Arrowhead store. Sandstrom's comparable-store sales gain -- a key retail barometer -- was 16% for the same period.

Sandstrom OnTV Company's year over year revenues have benefited from strong store sales, driven by the implementation of new marketing and merchandising strategies created by its new franchise sales team.

VP of Franchise Sales, Tim McCarthy, whose franchise and specialty retail experience has included successful runs with Natural Wonders, Nordic Track, UPS Stores, Coldstone Creamery and Dermacare USA, stated, "Our primary focus has been to develop new standards of operations for our franchise model. We have spent a great deal of time and resources implementing and testing these strategies at company-owned locations in the Phoenix market. Moving forward, given the significance of these increases, we are confident that our business model will continue to produce positive sales increases and ultimately provide our future franchisees the opportunity to own a break-through brand."
