[ORDER NO. 797]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status, Pier 1 Imports, Inc.
(Distribution Facility); Mansfield, Texas

    Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of
June 18, 1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) adopts the following Order:

    Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act ``To
provide for the establishment . . . of foreign-trade zones in ports of
entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce,
and for other purposes,'' as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the
Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to
qualified corporations the privilege of establishing foreign-trade
zones in or adjacent to U.S. Customs ports of entry;
    Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;
    Whereas, an application from Dallas/Fort Worth International
Airport Board, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 39, for authority to
establish special-purpose subzone status for the distribution facility
of Pier 1 Imports, Inc., located in Mansfield, Texas, was filed by the
Board on February 7, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was given
in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket 3-95, 60 FR 9004, 2/16/95); and,
    Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act
and Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the
application is in the public interest;
    Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a
subzone (Subzone 39D) at the Pier 1 Imports, Inc., facility in
Mansfield, Texas, at the location described in the application, subject
to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28. As
indicated in the application, no processing or manufacturing will be
conducted under zone procedures, including any such activity involving
foreign textile products.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 16th day of January 1996.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
Chairman Foreign-Trade Zones Board.
