Guam - In two days, three of Guam's biggest shopping centers will be crowded with island residents picking up their tax refund checks. In preparing for the large crowds, Guam Premier Outlets general manager Monte Mesa says in addition to the holiday rush, an organized system will be in place to ensure that the process goes smoothly while working with Rev & Tax, GPD and GPO's internal security.

"We've anticipated those that's why we're cooperating with Rev and Tax and GPD," he said. "They've been here several times now looking at scenarios and a mockup tabletop exercise in looking at how we're going to manage the crowd that we're going to anticipate."

Mesa expects a boost in sales but encourages residents to not camp out or park overnight as security will be monitoring the area.

Rev & Tax deputy director Marie Benito says DRT phone line problems should have been resolved by the end of today. She adds that the Micronesia Mall has changed their distribution hours on Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 8am to 5pm for letters 'P' through 'Z'. The Agana Shopping Center will handle letters 'A' through 'F', whereas GPO will handle letters 'G' to 'O' both from 8am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday.
