                               PURCHASE AGREEMENT

         THIS AGREEMENT, is made as of the Agreement Date between Seller and
Buyer and, in consideration of good and valuable consideration, the receipt and
sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, Seller agrees to sell the Property
(as hereinafter defined) and Buyer agrees to purchase the Property, upon the
following terms and conditions:

         1.   Property. The "Property" consists of approximately 27 acres of
land located at the intersection of Lyndale Avenue and 107th Street,
Bloomington, Hennepin County, Minnesota, as well as the building located thereon
and the fixtures, tangible personal property, and equipment located in such
building (or on such land) as of the Agreement Date; provided, however, that the
Property shall not include the "Non-Purchased Excluded Assets" described on
Exhibit A of Attachment 1 hereto; and, further provided, however, that the
Property shall specifically include the items described on Exhibit B to
Attachment 1 hereto.

         2.   No Warranties. The entire agreement between the Seller and Buyer
with respect to the Property and the sale thereof is expressly set forth in this
Agreement. The parties are not bound by any agreements, understandings,
provisions, conditions, representations or warranties (whether written or oral
and whether made by Seller or any agent, employee or principal of Seller or any
other party) other than as are expressly set forth and stipulated in this
Agreement. Without in any manner limiting the generality of the foregoing, Buyer
acknowledges that it and its representatives have or before closing will have
fully inspected the Property or will be provided with an adequate opportunity to
do so, are or will be fully familiar with the financial and physical (including
without limitation environmental) condition thereof, and that the Property has
been purchased by Buyer in an "AS IS" and "WHERE IS" condition and with all
existing defects as a result of such inspections and investigations and not in
reliance on any agreement, understanding, condition, warranty (including,
without limitation warranties of habitability, merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose) or representation made by Seller or any agent, employee or
principal of Seller or any other party (except as expressly elsewhere provided
in this Agreement) as to the financial or physical (including, without
limitation environmental) condition of the Property or the soils, geology and
groundwater of the Property or areas surrounding the Property, as to any matter,
including without limitation as to any permitted use thereof, the zoning
classification thereof, the existence, quality, nature, adequacy and physical
condition of utilities servicing the Property, or compliance thereof with
federal, state or local laws, as to the income or expense in connection
therewith, or as to any other matter
in connection therewith. Buyer acknowledges that neither Seller, or any agent or
employee of Seller nor any other party acting on behalf of Seller has made or
shall be deemed to have made any such agreement, condition, representation or
warranty either expressed or implied. This Section 2 shall survive closing, and
shall be deemed incorporated by reference and made a part of all documents
delivered by Seller to Buyer in connection with the sale of the Property.

                  a.  Condition of Delivery. Seller has no obligation to deliver
         the Property in a "broom clean" condition if it is currently not in
         broom clean condition, and at closing Seller may leave in the subject
         property all items of personal property and equipment, partitions and
         debris as are now presently therein, except as otherwise provided with
         respect to the Non-Purchased Excluded Assets and as provided in
         Sections 18 and 19 hereof.

                  b.  Seller Repairs. Between the Agreement Date and the
         closing, Seller shall perform all customary repairs to the Property as
         Seller has customarily previously performed to maintain them in the
         same condition as they are as of the Agreement Date, as said condition
         shall be changed by wear and tear, damage by fire or other casualty, or
         vandalism. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller shall have no
         obligation to make any structural or extraordinary repairs or capital

                  c.  Release. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary
         contained in this Agreement, Buyer hereby releases Seller and (as the
         case may be) Seller's officers, directors, shareholders, trustees,
         partners, employees, managers and agents from any and all claims,
         demands, causes of actions, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and
         expenses (including attorney's fees whether the suit is instituted or
         not) whether known or unknown, liquidated or contingent (hereinafter
         collectively called the "Claims") arising from or relating to: (i) any
         defects, errors or omissions in the design or construction of the
         improvements which are part of the Property, whether the same are the
         result of negligence or otherwise; or (ii) any other conditions,
         including environmental and other physical conditions, affecting the
         Property whether the same are a result of negligence or otherwise. The
         release set forth in this section specifically includes, without
         limitation, any claims under any environmental laws of the United
         States (including, without limitation, claims for contribution under
         Section 113 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation
         and Liability act [42 U.S.C.A. 9613]), the State of Minnesota or any
         political subdivision thereof or under the Americans with Disabilities
         Act of 1990, as any of those laws may be amended from time to time and
         any regulations, orders, rules of procedure or guidelines promulgated
         in connection with such laws, regardless of whether they are in
         existence on the Agreement Date. Buyer acknowledges that Buyer has been
         represented by independent legal counsel of Buyer's selection and Buyer
         is granting this release of its own volition and after consultation
         with Buyer's counsel.

                  d.  Seller Reports. Buyer acknowledges that Seller makes no
         warranties or representations regarding the adequacy, accuracy or
         completeness of Seller's
         environmental or other materials relating to the subject property made
         available to Buyer (collectively the "Reports") or other documents
         relating to the Property, and Buyer shall have no claim against Seller
         based upon the Reports or such other documents relating to the Property
         or Seller's failure to deliver any documents relating to the Property
         to Buyer. Buyer further acknowledges that Buyer has had full
         opportunity to perform such physical inspections, environmental and
         engineering investigations, and appraisals as Buyer deems appropriate.

                  e.  Effect of Disclaimers. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that
         the Purchase Price has been negotiated to take into account that the
         Property is being sold subject to the provisions of this Section of
         this Agreement and that Seller would have charged a higher purchase
         price if the provisions in this Section were not agreed upon by Buyer.

         3.   Closing. Buyer shall pay the Purchase Price to Seller (with due
credit for the Earnest Money) at the closing which shall occur 30 days after
Seller has delivered to Buyer a fully-executed counterpart of this Agreement and
amounts owing by Buyer at the closing shall be paid in collected funds.

         4.   Prorations; Costs.

                  a.  Seller shall pay all real estate taxes due and payable in
         years prior to the closing and those payable in the year of closing
         shall be prorated based on the number of days in the calendar year of
         closing prior to the closing and those days after the closing.

                  b.  All levied, deferred, and pending assessments shall be
         paid by Seller.

                  c.  Buyer will reduce its payment at closing to Seller by the
         cost of preparation of a title commitment respecting the Property (but
         not the cost of title insurance), as well as $3.40 for each $1,000 of
         the Purchase Price and Buyer will bear all other costs of deed taxes
         and recording fees for all documents necessary to vest title in the
         Property in Buyer. Buyer and Seller will each pay one-half of closing
         fees charged by a title company.

         5.   Examination of Title. Seller shall promptly provide at its cost to
Buyer a commitment for title insurance certified to the current date and the
Property shall be conveyed by Seller to Buyer by limited warranty deed, subject
to Section 17 hereof.

         6.   Contingencies. Unless waived by Buyer in writing, Buyer's
obligation to purchase the Property shall be subject to: (i) performance of
Seller's obligations hereunder; (ii) the continued accuracy of Seller's
representations and warranties set forth in Section 8 of this Agreement; and
(iii) Buyer's satisfaction, in Buyer's sole discretion as to the contingencies
described in this Section 6.
                  a.  Physical Condition. On or before date of Closing, Buyer
         shall have satisfied itself, at Buyer's sole discretion, with the
         physical condition of the Property; provided, however, that following
         10 days after Seller has delivered to Buyer a fully-executed
         counterpart of this Agreement, Buyer shall not be entitled to a refund
         of any of the Earnest Money if Buyer is not satisfied with the physical
         condition of the Property.

                  b.  Environmental Condition. On or before date of Closing,
         Buyer shall have satisfied itself, in Buyer's sole discretion, with the
         environmental condition of the Property; provided, however, that
         following 30 days after Seller has delivered to Buyer a fully-executed
         counterpart of this Agreement, Buyer shall not be entitled to a refund
         of any of the Earnest Money if Buyer is not satisfied with the
         environmental condition of the Property.

                  c.  Title. Buyer receives from Seller marketable title to the
         Property without exception except as set forth on Attachment 2 (which
         sets forth the "Permitted Encumbrances") of this Agreement.

         7.   Inspection. Buyer and Buyer's representatives, at Buyer's sole
cost and expense, shall have the right to enter upon the Property for the
purposes of viewing the Property and making such other physical inspection as
Buyer shall deem appropriate. Buyer shall repair and restore any damage to the
Property caused by or occurring during Buyer's testing and return the Property
to substantially the same condition as existed prior to such entry. Buyer shall
have the right to review any documents in Seller's possession related to the
Property. If Buyer consummates acquisition of the Property, Buyer shall own all
such documents described in the preceding sentence and Seller consents to any
professional (being non-employees of Seller such as surveyors or architects) who
provided services to Seller in connection with such documents being employed by
Buyer (and in connection therewith, using any file materials in such
professional's possession).

         8.   Seller's Representations and Warranties. To induce Buyer to: (i)
enter into this Agreement; (ii) purchase the Property; and (iii) consummate the
transaction contemplated by this Agreement, Seller hereby warrants and
represents to Buyer, as follows:

                  a.  Governmental Matters. Seller has not received written
         notice of: (i) any pending or contemplated annexation or condemnation
         proceedings, or purchase in lieu of the same, affecting or which may
         affect all or any part of the Property, (ii) any proposed or pending
         proceeding to change or redefine the zoning classification of all or
         any part of the Property; (iii) any proposed change(s) in any road
         patterns or grades which would adversely and materially affect access
         to the roads providing a means of ingress or egress to or from the
         Property; or (iv) any uncured violation of any legal requirement,
         restriction, condition, covenant or agreement affecting the Property or
         the use, operation, maintenance, or management of the Property.

                  b.  Title. Seller represents and warrants to Buyer that, to
         Seller's actual knowledge as of the date of this Agreement, without
         investigation of any kind or nature whatsoever, Seller will at the
         closing hereunder be the sole owner of the Property and
         will transfer to Buyer at the closing good and marketable title to the
         Property subject only to the Permitted Encumbrances described in
         Attachment 2 and, specifically, but not by way of limitation: (i) there
         shall be no leases, tenancies, agreements or other contracts of any
         nature or type affecting or serving the Property as of the closing
         except service contracts which are readily terminable without penalty;
         and (ii) the Property is not subject to any other contracts for sale,
         options, rights of first refusal or similar contract rights or
         restrictions which limit Seller's right to sell the Property to Buyer.
         Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, it is acknowledged Seller is
         party to an agreement with another potential purchaser; in respect
         thereof, Seller represents that any of its obligations to such other
         potential purchaser will not limit Seller's right to consummate the
         transaction contemplated hereby, and convey marketable title (so long
         as the closing occurs before September 28, 2001); Seller shall
         indemnify, defend, and hold Buyer harmless from any cost, expense, or
         liability in connection with such other purchaser's agreements in
         respect of the Property.

         9.   Environmental Matters.

                  a.  Representations by Seller. Seller represents and warrants
         to Buyer that, to Seller's actual knowledge as of the date of this
         Agreement without investigation of any kind or nature whatsoever: (i)
         there are no material Hazardous Substances located on the Property,
         except as disclosed in the environmental reports which Seller delivers
         to Buyer within five days after Seller signs the Agreement; and (ii)
         the Property has not been used by Seller in connection with the
         generation, disposal, storage, treatment or transportation of material
         Hazardous Substances except as disclosed in the environmental reports
         described above. Notwithstanding the preceding provisions of this
         Section 9(a), it is understood that certain of the Non-Purchased
         Excluded Assets may be Hazardous Substances but will be removed by
         Seller from the Property. It is also understood that there are certain
         supplies used in the normal operation of the Property (such as fuel
         oil, lubricants and gasoline) which may Hazardous Substances.

                  b.  "Hazardous Substance" Definition. For purposes of this
         Agreement, the term "Hazardous Substance" includes, but is not limited
         to, substances defined as "hazardous substances", "toxic substances",
         or "Hazardous waste" in the Comprehensive Environmental Response
         Compensation Liability Act of 1980, a amended, 42 USC Section 9601, et

         petroleum products, heating oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids,
         liquefied natural gas or synthetic gas usable for fuel.

         10.  Default. Either Buyer or Seller shall be in default under this
Agreement if either party fails to observe, perform or comply with any term,
condition or obligation of this Agreement within the time period(s) described in
this Agreement. In the event of default, the parties shall have the rights
described as to such default in this Agreement, provided, however, that nothing
herein shall deprive either party of any rights or remedies available to such
party at law or in equity, including the right of enforcing the specific
performance of this Agreement,
provided action to enforce the specific performance of this Agreement shall be
commenced within six months after such right of action shall arise.

         11.  Termination of Agreement. In the event of termination of this
Agreement for any reason described in this Agreement which entitles Buyer to a
return of the Earnest Money (including those described in Section 6), Buyer
specifically agrees that the Earnest Money shall not be returned to Buyer unless
and until Buyer provides Seller with a recordable Quit Claim Deed to the
Property executed by Buyer.

         12.  Risk of Loss. Between the date of this Agreement and the closing,
the risk of ownership and loss of the Property shall belong solely to Seller.
If, prior to closing, all or any portion of the Property is condemned, taken by
eminent domain, damaged by fire or by any other cause of any nature, Seller
shall, to the extent Seller receives knowledge of the same, immediately give
Buyer notice of such condemnation, taking or damage. After receipt of notice of
such condemnation, taking or damage (from Seller or otherwise), Buyer shall have
the option either: (i) to require Seller to convey the Property at closing to
Buyer in its damaged condition, upon and subject to all of the other terms and
conditions of this Agreement without reduction of the Purchase Price (in which
case Buyer shall be entitled to the proceeds of any recovery relating to such
damage or taking from parties other than Seller, including, without limitation
insurance or eminent domain proceeds); or (ii) to terminate this Agreement by
giving notice of such termination to Seller, whereupon this Agreement shall be
terminated, the Earnest Money shall be returned to Buyer, provided, however,
that the terms and conditions of Section 11 shall apply, and thereafter neither
party shall have any further obligations or liabilities to the other. The right
to terminate this Agreement shall be exercised within 10 business days of the
date of notice of the event giving rise to such notice and if not exercised by
Buyer within said time period such right shall be deemed to have been waived.

         13.  Successors and Assigns. The terms, conditions and covenants hereof
shall extend to, be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and
assigns of the parties to this Agreement.

         14.  Survival of Covenants. All agreements, and all warranties,
representations and indemnities specifically set forth in this Agreement shall
survive the closing and shall bind the parties subsequent to the closing as
fully as if new agreements were entered into at closing, any rule of law to the
contrary notwithstanding.

         15.  Leaseback. At the closing, Seller and Buyer shall enter into the
Leaseback Agreement as set forth on Attachment 3.


         17.  Transfer to Owned Entity. At Buyer's request, Seller will, prior
to the closing hereunder, transfer the Property (by way of a deed in the form
described above) to a Minnesota limited liability company owned wholly by
Seller, and at the closing hereunder, transfer to Buyer all ownership interests
in such entity (which entity Seller represents and warrants will have no assets
other than the Property and no liabilities).
         18.  Removal of Non-purchased Excluded Assets. When Seller's occupancy
of the Property terminates (being at the end of the term of Seller's leaseback),
Seller will remove all Non-Purchased Excluded Assets from the Property.

         19.  Clean Up. When Seller's occupancy of the Property terminates
(being at the end of the term of Seller's leaseback), Seller will remove all
chemicals or hazardous substances used in its business operations and clean any
piping, vats, or ducts used in connection therewith. If appropriate in
connection with such materials, Seller shall obtain a licensed contractor to
perform such activities and certify the completion thereof.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Purchase Agreement
as of the day and year first above written.
