Thomas Pileggi, a prominent Bucks County developer and sometime business partner of comedian Joan Rivers, has a $2 billion plan for developing half of the soon-to-close Philadelphia Navy Base. Pileggi's talking about the eastern half, the long-closed Henry C. Mustin Airfield, where naval aviation was born and airplanes were built during two World Wars, not the shipyard area west of Broad Street. All the city has to do, Pileggi said, is put up 500-plus acres of land it already controls.

Gloucester Township, commonly referred to by its neighborhood names - Blackwood, Erial, Blenheim - hopes a new outlet mall will help create an identity that makes the town a destination. A 55-acre complex has been proposed near the Route 42 interchange. To be known as Gloucester Premium Outlets, it will house 90 to 120 stores in a 450,000-square-foot center that the township's mayor, David Mayer, called an "outdoor mall. " The project is a partnership between Simon Property Group, which developed Philadelphia Premium Outlets in Limerick, and PREIT-Rubin Inc., which owns the Cherry Hill and Moorestown Malls.

People hoping to find extra work as the holiday buying season approaches may find that job prospects aren't as cheerful this year. Several retailers plan to hire fewer seasonal employees, with one major department store projecting that it would operate with a holiday sales force 25 percent smaller than normal. "We are hiring considerably less because of the outlook for sales for the holiday," said Heather Still, personnel specialist for J.C. Penney at the Gallery at Market East.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Just in time for the holidays, the Shoppes at Sands made its debut here Tuesday at the Sands Casino Resort, representing the next phase of expansion among Pennsylvania's gambling halls. The goal: to become shopping and entertainment centers, just like their Atlantic City rivals. Six retailers opened for business at the high-end outlet mall - the first inside a Pennsylvania casino - at 10 a.m. and were offering substantial discounts. They included 30 to 50 percent off women's fashions at Talbots, 50 percent off at DKNY, and "savings up to 80 percent off" at Lenox, a fine china and giftware shop.

Forrester outclasses Corzine in integrity It seems like news stories regarding Jon Corzine's financial schemes have been appearing more often than Martha Stewart on television. A few weeks ago, public-interest lawyers filed a complaint with the U.S. Senate's ethics committee over Corzine's half-million-dollar gift to union leader Carla Katz. Recently, the same lawyers filed a second ethics complaint: Apparently, Corzine voted this year for a tax break that would save just a handful of people millions of dollars.

The dozen casinos here generated $5 billion in revenue last year, thanks in no small part to visitors who frequented the eight-block outlet mall that links the Boardwalk and the city's convention center. Atlantic City Outlets - The Walk has been so successful in attracting non-gamblers to the resort that it will soon double in size. Groundbreaking is scheduled late next month for the first phase of a $155 million expansion that will add new shops, restaurants, condominiums and offices above retail outlets on the west side of Michigan Avenue.

That trend is likely to continue, says Stephen Yalof, chief executive officer of Simon Premium Outlets.

Attention, Franklin Mills shoppers: Just when you thought you'd mastered the nearly mile-long, zig-zaggy, color-coded outlet mall, there will be a few more spots to explore later this year. A Nordstrom Factory Direct - "NFD" - outlet is scheduled to open at the mall in May. A Neiman-Marcus outlet will open April 1, and two other major retail spaces are apparently up for grabs. The Franklin Mills NFD, which will carry discounted Nordstrom merchandise and designer apparel, with an emphasis on shoes, is Nordstrom's first.

The snowstorm of the decade spelled potential disaster for the region's retailers on what is typically one of the most profitable weekends of the year. As snow crippled the area, retail and restaurant managers from Center City and King of Prussia to Voorhees and Atlantic City worked feverishly with snowplow teams throughout the day to keep up with the massive snowfall and ensure their sidewalks and parking lots were cleared. But many customers stayed home, forcing several malls, which had extended hours for the holiday season, to close early, including Cherry Hill Mall, or not open at all, like The Walk, an outdoor outlet mall in Atlantic City.

Even before the sun could rise on Black Friday 2007, shoppers filled the region's biggest retail centers despite concerns over higher gasoline prices and a weaker economy. As they have in previous years, some hardy souls camped outside their favorite stores for hours, or waited in register lines for just as long after reeling in bargains. Others made pilgrimages, like Susan Moore, 49, and her two sisters and daughter-in-law. Moore's gang drove in on Thanksgiving evening from the Pittsburgh area and set up camp at the Holiday Inn Express across from the King of Prussia malls for a three-day shopping extravaganza that began at 4:30 a.m. yesterday, a half-hour before the first stores let customers inside.

Manfred "Whitey" Lee, chief executive officer of Vanity Fair Corp., was only looking to unload some surplus socks and irregular lingerie when he opened a factory store in a shuttered knitting mill along the Schuylkill in 1970. Little did he know that he had created a national shrine to the deep discount. Lured by cut-rate undies, shoppers flooded in. They were followed to Reading by other manufacturers who set up stores of their own, forming the country's first outlet mall.

Attention, shoppers! Conflicted by a patriotic duty to shop and fears about the economy? Torn by an ever-growing holiday list and your spouse's harping about last year's credit-card bills? The answer may be the many outlet centers that are only a day trip away. Whether you're shopping for a label-obsessed teen who will wear only Tommy or Guess?, a snobby boss who prefers Coach leather, or newlyweds looking to complete their china set, outlets can be a godsend to the bargain shopper.
