Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from The PRISM Company, Inc.

    TUNICA, Miss., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Casino Factory Shoppes, LLC of
 Tunica, MS has announced that Gap Outlet and Pfaltzgraff will soon open in the
 latest phase of the center.  A 9,000 s.f. Gap Outlet will feature outlet
 pricing on Gap clothing and accessories for men, women as well as Baby Gap and
 Gap Kids departments.  Pfaltzgraff will open a 6,000 s.f. outlet store
 featuring their world-renowned line of tabletop designs, linens  and
 housewares.  Both stores are expected to be open this summer.
     Etienne Aigner, one of the most popular designers of women's shoes and
 accessories in today's market, celebrated the Grand Opening of their new
 outlet concept store at the center earlier this month.  "We had carloads of
 professional women pulling up to the front door before we had even opened the
 doors," stated Cindy Massey, Manager of the Etienne Aigner Outlet.
     "Putting together the best line-up of tenants is our number one priority
 in making this center a success," stated Erica Rideout, of Sundance
 Associates, which handles the leasing for the center.  "Casino Factory Shoppes
 now offers consumers from Memphis and surrounding markets a very compelling
 draw.  The closest Gap Outlet prior to this new location was in Nashville."
     Janet Grady, President of The PRISM Company, which is responsible for the
 marketing plan for Casino Factory Shoppes, stated that the growth of tourism
 to the Tunica casinos and hotels has been the main selling-point for retailers
 coming into this market, as well as the strong permanent population base in
 Memphis and neighboring DeSoto County.  "With its strategic location within a
 25-minute drive of Memphis, and direct access to over 10 million visitors to
 the area a year, the center attracts shoppers from both markets," stated
 Grady.
     "Excellent selection and value have always been the cornerstones of
 factory outlet retail," stated Grady.  "Casino Factory Shoppes provides
 visitors to Tunica a state-of-the-art outlet shopping experience to round out
 their visit to the area."  Casino Factory Shoppes is located on Hwy. 61 North,
 directly across the street from the main entrance to the Grand Casino Resort.
