Dear Blair Corporation Stockholder:
You are cordially invited to attend a special meeting of stockholders of Blair Corporation, (“Blair”) to be held at 11:00 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, on Tuesday April 24, 2007, at The Library Theatre, located at 302 Third Avenue West, Warren, Pennsylvania.
At the special meeting you will be asked to consider and vote upon a proposal to adopt an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated January 23, 2007 (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which Appleseed’s Topco, Inc. (“Appleseed’s”) has agreed to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Blair Corporation common stock in an all cash transaction of $42.50 per share. Following the close of the transaction, Blair will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Appleseed’s. If Blair’s stockholders adopt the Agreement and the transaction is completed, you will receive $42.50 in cash for each share of Blair common stock you own.
Your Board of Directors Unanimously Determined that the Merger Agreement
Is In the Best Interests of Blair’s Stockholders and Recommends that You
Vote “FOR” the Adoption of the Agreement.
The $42.50 all cash price represents a nearly 30% premium over the closing stock price on December 29, 2006, the last day of trading prior to Appleseed’s initial formal offer. The price also is an approximate 40% premium to Blair’s average closing stock price over the 90 days prior to the announcement of the agreement on January 23, 2007.
The Board Conducted a Comprehensive and Thorough Process of Evaluating the
Proposal Prior to Voting to Approve the Agreement.
Prior to reaching its decision, the Board of Directors consulted with independent financial and legal advisors and conducted a comprehensive review of the proposed transaction. We considered many factors which are outlined in the attached proxy statement. We also reviewed a fairness opinion provided by Stephens Inc., which found that the proposed purchase price is fair to Blair stockholders from a financial point of view. Stephens considered such factors as Blair’s expected financial performance and present condition, assets, financial performance compared to other catalog companies and the amounts paid in other similar transactions. Copies of the fairness opinion are included in the proxy statement.
Based on these and other factors, the Board of Directors unanimously concluded that the proposed Appleseed’s transaction is in the best interests of Blair Corporation stockholders.
The Board’s Open Review Process Provided Us An Opportunity To Solicit
Other Bidders For a Better Offer. We Did Not Receive Any.
The Merger Agreement included a 30 day “go-shop” process during which the Company, with the assistance of Stephens Inc., solicited other parties willing to acquire the Company on terms and conditions more favorable than those of Appleseed’s in the Merger Agreement. During the go-shop period, Stephens made contact with 93 parties, 4 of whom expressed interest, executed confidentiality agreements with Blair and received confidential information regarding the Company. At the conclusion of the “go-shop” process, the Company did not receive any acquisition proposals to acquire the Company.


Your Vote Is Important. Please Vote “FOR” the Merger Agreement Today.
Your Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on March 16, 2007 as the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the special meeting. Whether or not you plan to attend the special meeting, please use the enclosed proxy to vote promptly — by telephone or Internet, or by signing, dating and returning the proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided. Your proxy is being solicited by, and on behalf of, the Board of Directors. The failure to vote has the same effect as a vote against the adoption of the Merger Agreement.
The accompanying proxy statement provides you with additional detailed information about the proposed merger and the special meeting. Please give this material your careful attention. You also may obtain more information about Blair from documents we have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
If you have any questions about voting your shares, please contact Blair’s proxy solicitor, Georgeson Shareholder Communications, Inc., at (866) 229-8451.
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support.
