Foreign-Trade Zones Board
[ORDER NO. 798]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status Pier 1 Imports, Inc.
(Distribution Facility); Grove City, Ohio

    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 the Rickenbacker Port Authority,
grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 138, for authority to establish special-
purpose subzone status for the distribution facility of Pier 1 Imports,
Inc., located in Grove City, Ohio, was filed by the Board on February
8, 1995, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal
Register (FTZ Docket 4-95, 60 FR 9005, 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 138B) at the Pier 1 Imports, Inc., facility in Grove
City, Ohio, 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.

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Alternate
