[Order No. 859]

Grant of Authority for Subzone Status; PETsMART, Inc. (Pet
Products Warehouse/Distribution Facility), Phoenix, AZ

    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 City of Phoenix, grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 75, for authority to establish special-purpose
subzone status at the pet products warehouse/distribution facility of
PETsMART, Inc., in Phoenix, Arizona, was filed by the Board on February
22, 1996, and notice inviting public comment was given in the Federal
Register (FTZ Docket 15-96, 61 FR 9674, 3/11/96); and,
    Whereas, the Board adopts the findings and recommendations of the
examiner's report, and finds 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 75F) at the PETsMART, Inc., plant in Phoenix, Arizona,
at the location described in the application, subject to the FTZ Act
and the Board's regulations, including Sec. 400.28.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 5th day of December, 1996.
Robert S. LaRussa,
Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration,
Alternate Chairman, Foreign-Trade Zones Board.

John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,
