Anna's Linens opening breaks record

LAS VEGAS -- The grand opening of Anna's Linens 200th store here this morning not only marked a new milestone for the rapidly expanding home furnishings chain, it also broke the record for sales volume in the first hour of business for a new store.

Sales at the Silverado Ranch Shopping Center store during the first 60 minutes of business were double the norm, according to Alan Gladstone, chairman, president and CEO.
