CANTON, Mass., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Casual Male Retail Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: "CMRG"), the largest retailer of big & tall men's apparel and accessories, today announced  that its first DestinationXL® store in the Middle East will open this spring in Symphony Mall, Kuwait City, Kuwait under a franchise agreement between one of its subsidiaries and The Standard Arabian Business & Enterprises Company (SABECO).  The franchise agreement governs the operation of the store and provides that within two years of the store's opening to the public, the Casual Male Retail Group, Inc. subsidiary has an option to purchase an equity interest in the store. The DestinationXL store is expected to open April, 2012.
