SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Mall gift certificate purchases -- now 
 made easier!  Neighborhood Box Office Inc. (NBO) located in Salt Lake City, 
 Utah has entered into an agreement to provide an electronic interactive kiosk 
 system designed to distribute mall gift certificates in certain regional 
 shopping centers in the greater Chicago market and in Massachusetts, 
 California, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Florida.

 The gift certificates will be distributed through NBO's interactive touch 
 screen kiosks, making the actual purchase of mail gift certificates less time 
 consuming and more convenient for customers. Gift certificates purchased may be 
 redeemed at any store within the participating shopping centers.  The NBO 
 kiosks will be located in the common area of each shopping center allowing 
 customers direct access to the touch screen kiosks while enjoying their 
 shopping experience.

 Due to expense and the cumbersome nature of administrating mall gift 
 certificates, many leading shopping center owners/managers have discontinued 
 their mall gift certificate programs.  The NBO interactive system eliminates 
 all concerns traditionally associated with gift certificate programs, making 
 the process more efficient and profitable. With the availability of this 
 technology many consumers will, once again, enjoy the convenience and service 
 associated with purchasing mall gift certificates.  Once the NBO system is in 
 place selling mall gift certificates, individual mall stores and anchor stores 
 can be added to the system, should the mall choose.

 Neighborhood Box Office's Chairman/CEO, Keith A. Guevara states, "The agreement 
 allows the industry to reach a significant milestone in the distribution of 
 mall gift certificates as well as individual store gift certificates.  
 Difficulties currently facing consumers when purchasing certificates, such as 
 long lines and hard-to-find distribution points, will now be eliminated with 
 the NBO system, allowing each customer fast, convenient access to mall gift 
 certificates.  Attractive kiosks centrally located in the common area will also 
 raise awareness to customers who are not currently aware that mall gift 
 certificates exist."

 Neighborhood Box Office Inc. is in business to develop, market, own and operate 
 remote automated ticketing and gift certificate kiosk systems. With systems 
 currently in place in New York, Michigan, Colorado and Utah, NBO has become a 
 national leader in transactional interactive kiosk technology and takes pride 
 in offering complete development services including customized software 
 development, hardware integration, communication capabilities and customized 
 kiosk design for both transactional and informational situations. For
