MINIMUM RENT Tenant agrees to pay to Owner at the address specified In Section 27.05 or at such other place designated by Owner (including without limitation by way of a lock box), without any prior notice or demand therefor and without any deduction or setoff whatsoever, the "Minimum Rent" specified in Article A, in equal monthly installments on or before the first day of each calendar month in advance. Minimum Rent for a fractional calendar month (including the fractional calendar month at the commencement of the term, if any) shall be prorated on a per diem basis. If the term of this Lease includes any Partial Lease Year, as defined in Section 26.06, then Tenant shall pay as Minimum Rant for any Partial Lease Year, the then applicable Minimum Rent payable per annum prorated on a per diem basis with respect to such Partial Lease Year. SECTION 2.02. PERCENTAGE RENT (a) In addition to the payment of Minimum Rent, Tenant agrees to pay to Owner for each Lease Year as "Percentage Rent" hereunder, an amount equal to the "Percentage Rate" set forth in Article A for the "Gross Sales", as that term is hereinafter defined, for each such Lease Year in excess of the applicable "Percentage Breakpoint" set forth in Article A for each such Lease Year. With respect to each Lease Year, the Percentage Rent shall be due and payable commencing with the calendar month during such Lease Year in which the aggregate Gross Sales for such Lease Year shall first have exceeded the applicable Percentage Breakpoint and thereafter shall be paid monthly on all additional Gross Sales made during the remainder of such Lease Year. Such payments shall be made to Owner not later than the fifteenth (15th) day following each month in which any such excess Gross Sales are made and without any prior notice or demand therefor and without any setoff or deduction whatsoever. (b) For the purpose of computing the Percentage Rent payable hereunder with respect to any Partial Lease Year or Lease Year in which there has been an abatement of Minimum Rent as provided in this Lease, the applicable Percentage Breakpoint shall be adjusted to equal the product obtained by multiplying the applicable Percentage Breakpoint by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Minimum Rent paid by Tenant for such Partial Lease Year or Lease Year, and the denominator of which is the Minimum Rent otherwise payable by Tenant had such Partial Lease Year or Lease Year constituted three hundred sixty-five (365) days or had the Minimum Rent been payable without abatement. SECTION 2.03. GROSS SALES DEFINED SEE RIDER PARAGRAPH 2 The term "Gross Sales" as used herein shall be defined to mean the aggregate amount of the price charged for all goods sold, services rendered and other operations in, on, at or from the Leased Premises by Tenant and all others, whether such sales are evidenced by cash, check, credit charge account, exchange or otherwise and regardless of the amount, if any, of profits realized on any transaction. Gross Sales shall include, but not be limited to, the entire amount of the price charged, whether wholly or partially in cash or credit, from the sale, lease, licensing or delivery of goods, wares and merchandise, whether such sales be made by means of merchandise or other vending 4 or video devices in the Leased Premises, rentals, lottery tickets, food, drinks, sales to Tenant's employees, deposits not refunded to purchasers, service charges for layaway sales, receipts from the sale of gift certificates and merchandise vouchers at the time of sale, not at the time of redemption for merchandise, and for service performed in, on or from the Leased Premises, together with the amount of all orders taken or received, including mail, catalog, telephone, telegraph, electronic mail, at home, or other orders received at the Leased Premises, whether such orders be filled from the Leased Premises or elsewhere and the amounts received from interest on charge accounts and other finance charges, and, if any one or more departments or other divisions of Tenant's business shall be sublet by Tenant or conducted by any person, firm or corporation other than Tenant pursuant to this Lease, for all receipts of gross sales of such departments or divisions in the same manner and with the same effect as if the business or sales of such departments and divisions of Tenant's business had been conducted by Tenant itself. Gross Sales shall not include sales of merchandise for which cash has been refunded or allowances made on merchandise claimed to be defective or unsatisfactory, provided they shall have been included in Gross Sales and provided that if such refunds or allowances are in the form of credits to customers, such credits shall be included in Gross Sales when used; the sales price of merchandise returned by customers for exchange, provided that the sales price of merchandise delivered to the customer in exchange shall be included in Gross Sales; the amount of any sales, use or gross receipts tax imposed by any federal, state, municipal or other governmental authority directly on sales and collected from customers, provided that the amount thereof is added to the selling price or absorbed therein, that the amount is paid by Tenant to such governmental authority and that a specific record is made at the time of each sale of the amount of tax. Each charge or sale upon installment or credit shall be treated as a sale for the full price in the month during which such charge or sale shall be made, irrespective of the time when Tenant shall receive payment (whether full or partial) therefor, and no reserve or deduction shall be allowed for uncollected or uncollectible charge accounts, bad debts, or other items. Each charge or sale shall be recorded for its full amount, and no deduction or offset thereto shall be permitted for trade-ins, over-allowances for trade-ins, coupons, handling charges for coupons or the equivalent. SECTION 2.04. REAL ESTATE TAXES (a) Tenant shall pay its proportionate share of the "Real Estate Taxes" which may be levied or assessed against the land, buildings and other improvements owned by Owner in the Shopping Center during the term of this Lease. Said land, buildings and improvements shall hereinafter be referred to as "Owner's Parcel". For purposes of this Section, the term "Real Estate Taxes" shall include all real estate taxes, assessments, water and sewer rents (except water meter charges and sewer rent based thereon) and other governmental impositions and charges of every kind and nature whatsoever, extraordinary as well as ordinary, general and special, foreseen and unforeseen, and each and every Installment thereof (including any interest on amounts which may be paid in installments) which shall or may, during the term of this Lease, be levied, assessed, imposed or becomes due and payable with respect to Owner's Parcel, or which Owner is contractually obligated to pay (including, without limitation, payments in lieu of Real Estate Taxes to any governmental or quasi-governmental entity) or which arise in connection with the use, occupancy or possession of or grow due or payable out of or for Owner's Parcel or any part thereof, or which may have been assessed by any taxing body on Owner's Parcel in any calendar year or part thereof during the term of this Lease but which are abated pursuant to ordinances of any taxing body, plus all costs incurred by Owner (including reasonable attorney, consultant and appraiser fees) in contesting or negotiating the Real Estate Taxes, any proposed Real Estate Taxes or any reassessment of Real Estate Taxes with any governmental authority, plus an administrative fee equal to two and one-half percent (2 1/2%) of the total of the foregoing costs and Real Estate Taxes. (b) Nothing herein contained shall be construed to include as a tax which shall be the basis of Real Estate Taxes, any inheritance, estate, succession, transfer, gift, franchise, corporation, income or profit tax or capital levy that is or may be imposed upon Owner, provided, however, that if, at any time after the date hereof the methods of taxation shall be altered so that in lieu of or as a substitute for or in addition to the whole or any part of the Real Estate Taxes now levied, assessed or imposed on the Owner's Parcel, there shall be levied, assessed or imposed a tax on the rents received from the Owner's Parcel, or a tax or license fee imposed upon Owner which is otherwise measured by or based in whole or in part upon Owner's Parcel or any portion thereof, then the same shall be included in the computation of Real Estate Taxes hereunder and computed as if the amount of such tax or fee so payable were that due if Owner's Parcel were the only property of Owner subject thereto. (c) Tenant's proportionate share of the Real Estate Taxes shall be the sum obtained by multiplying the total amount of the Real Estate Taxes assessed each calender year on the Owner's Parcel (less any contribution thereto by the Major Stores) by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the Floor Area of the Leased Premises and the denominator of which shall be the leased and occupied Floor Area of the Owner's Parcel (less the Floor Area of the Major Store Premises) for such calendar year; provided, however, in no event shall such denominator be less than the amount equal to eighty percent (80%) of the average of the total Floor Area of the owner's Parcel available for lease on the first day of each calendar month in such calendar year (less the Floor Area of the Major Store Premises). The Floor Area of the Owner's Parcel in effect for the whole of any calender year shall be the average of the leased and occupied Floor Area in affect on the first day of each calendar month in such calendar year. Tenant hereby waives any right it may have by statute or otherwise to protest the Real Estate Taxes Imposed on the Owner's Parcel, the building or buildings of which the Leased Premises form a part or the Leased Premises; it being agreed that Owner shall have the exclusive right (but not obligation) to contest or compromise any Real Estate Taxes. (d) Tenant shall pay to Owner, as Additional Rent, Tenant's proportionate share of Real Estate Taxes in estimated (which estimate may be based on the prior calendar year's actual Real Estate Taxes) equal monthly installments in advance on the first day of each calender month during the term of this Lease. If Owner determines that Owner has underestimated Tenant's proportionate share of Real Estate Taxes, Owner may revise its estimate and adjust Tenant's monthly payments upon written notice to Tenant and such adjusted estimate shall become effective as of the next monthly payment. Within a reasonable time after receipt of the actual tax bill for such calendar year, Owner shall furnish to Tenant a statement showing Tenant's proportionate share of Real Estate Taxes for such calendar year and the payments made by Tenant for such calendar year. If Tenant's aggregate monthly payments are greater than Tenant's proportionate share of Real Estate Taxes with respect to such calendar year, then Tenant shall receive a credit for the excess against future payments of Tenant's proportionate share of Real Estate Taxes becoming due to Owner (or if such excess occurs at the end Of the term or is otherwise incapable of being credited against future payments end provided that Tenant is current in the payment of Minimum Rent, Percentage Rent, Additional Rent and all other sums payable under any of the terms and provisions of this Lease, such excess shall be refunded to Tenant within twenty (20) days after said determination). If Tenant's aggregate monthly payments are less than Tenant's proportionate share of Real Estate Taxes for such calendar year, then Tenant shall pay to Owner the difference within ten (10) days after receipt of Owner's statement. If the term of this Lease shall begin or end other than on the first or last day of a calendar year, Tenant's proportionate share of the Real Estate Taxes shall be prorated for such calendar year based on a three hundred sixty-five (365) day year. In the event of any dispute in the amount of any payment actually due under this Section. Tenant shall pay the amount according to Owner's bill or statement hereunder. However, such payment shall be without prejudice to Tenant's position, and if the dispute shall be determined in Tenant's favour, by agreement or otherwise, Owner shall issue a credit to Tenant against future payments of Tenant's proportionate share of the Real Estate Taxes for the amount of Tenant's overpayment resulting from such compliance by Tenant. Any tax bill or statement sent by Owner shall be deemed binding and conclusive if Tenant fails to object thereto within thirty (30) days after receipt thereof. (e) Tenant shall be solely responsible for and shall pay before delinquency all taxes, assessments, license fees and public charges levied, assessed or imposed upon its business operation, as well as upon all trade fixtures, merchandise and other personal property in or upon the Leased Premises whether or not owned by Tenant. Should the taxing authorities include in Real Estate Taxes machinery, equipment, fixtures, inventory or other personal property or assets of Tenant, then Tenant shall also pay the entire taxes for such items. SECTION 2.05. ADDITIONAL RENT Wherever it is provided In this Lease that Tenant is required to make any payment to Owner, such payment shall be deemed to be 'Additional Rent, whether or not the same be designated "Additional Rent".

Upon receipt of such request and all such Information, Owner shall have the right (without limiting Owner's right of consent in respect of such assignment or subletting), by giving notice to Tenant within fifteen (15) days thereafter, (i) to terminate this Lease if the request is for an assignment or a subletting of all the Leased Premises, or (ii) if such request is to sublet a portion of the Leased Premises only, to terminate this Lease with respect to such portion. If Owner exercises its right to terminate this Lease, the effective date of termination shall be set forth in Owner's notice to Tenant, but such date shall not be earlier than the effective date of the proposed assignment or subletting nor later than ninety (90) days thereafter. If Owner so elects to terminate this Lease, Tenant shall continue to pay the Minimum Rent, annual Percentage Rent and other charges hereunder to Owner until the effective date of termination, on which date Tenant will surrender possession of the Leased Premises or the portion thereof subject to such right of termination to Owner in accordance with the terms of this Lease. If Owner shall terminate this Lease as to a portion of the Leased Premises only, then following such termination the Minimum Rent (but not the annual Percentage Rent) and other charges hereunder determined on the basis of the Floor Area in the Leased Premises shall be reduced in the same proportion as the Floor Area in such portion of the Leased Premises bears to the Floor Area in the Leased Premises immediately prior to such termination. (f) If Tenant shall request Owner's consent to an assignment of this Lease and Owner shall consent thereto, the assignee ("Assignee") shall pay directly to Owner, as Additional Rent hereunder, at such times as the Assignee shall have agreed to pay Tenant, an amount equal to any consideration the Assignee shall have agreed to pay Tenant on account of such assignment. If Assignee shall fail to pay Owner any such consideration when due, such failure shall constitute a default under this Lease. (g) If Tenant shall request Owner's consent to a subletting of the Leased Premises or any part thereof and Owner shall consent thereto, Tenant shall pay Owner, as Additional Rent, in addition to the Minimum Rent and other charges payable hereunder, an amount equal to any consideration paid by the subtenant to Tenant in excess of (i) the Minimum Rent, annual Percentage Rent and other charges payable hereunder if all of the Leased Premises are so sublet or (II) If less than all of the Leased Premises are so sublet, the Minimum Rent, annual Percentage Rent and other charges payable hereunder allocable to the portion of the Leased Premises so sublet based on the Floor Area in the Leased Premises so sublet to the total Floor Area in the Leased Premises. The foregoing amount shall be determined monthly and paid by Tenant to Owner on the first day of each calendar month in advance during the term of such sublease. If Tenant shall fail to pay Owner any such consideration, such failure shall be a default under this Lease. (h) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, in the event of an assignment of this Lease, or the subletting of all or any portion of the Leased Premises (whether with or without the consent of Owner, but nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed to give Tenant the right to assign this Lease or sublet all or any portion of the Leased Premises without Owner's consent), the Minimum Rent payable hereunder shall, effective as of the effective date of each such assignment or subletting, automatically be Increased to the greater of (i) an amount equal to the highest annual combined Minimum Rent and annual Percentage Rent payable by Tenant during any Lease Year prior to such effective date or (ii) one hundred twenty percent (120%) of the Minimum Rent which would have otherwise been payable during the remainder of the term of this Lease. SECTION 16.02. OWNER'S RIGHT TO ASSIGN LEASE Owner's rights to assign this Lease are and shall remain unqualified. Upon any sale or transfer of Owner's interest in this Lease or the Shopping Center, Owner shall thereupon be entirely freed of all obligations of the Owner hereunder and shall not be subject to any liability resulting from any act, omission or event occurring after such conveyance. 29 SECTION 16.03.

SECTION 16.04. CONTINUING LIABILITY OF TENANT Notwithstanding any assignment or sublease pursuant to this Article, Tenant and any Guarantor hereof shall remain fully liable on this Lease and shall not be released from performing any of the terms, covenants and conditions of this Lease.

Notwithstanding any termination of Tenant's right to possession of the Leased Premises without termination of this Lease, Owner may at any time after such termination of possession elect to terminate this Lease for such previous breach by giving notice thereof to Tenant. (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease and notwithstanding any other rights or remedies Owner may have, Tenant shall be deemed to be in "Chronic Default" if Tenant commits a monetary default during any three hundred sixty-five (365) day period in which any three (3) other events of monetary default have already occurred (even though said defaults may have been timely cured).

The residue, if any, shall be held by Owner and applied in payment of future rent as the same may become due and payable hereunder. If the rentals received from such reletting during any month are less than that to be paid during that month by Tenant hereunder, Tenant shall pay any such deficiency to Owner. Such deficiency shall be calculated and paid monthly. No re-entry or taking possession of the Leased Premises by Owner shall be construed as an election on its part to terminate this Lease unless a written notice of such intention is given to Tenant or unless the termination thereof is decreed by a court of competent Jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any such reletting without termination, Owner may at any time thereafter elect to terminate this Lease for such previous breach. Should Owner at any time terminate this Lease for any breach, then in Addition to any other remedies Owner may have, Owner may recover from Tenant all damages Owner may incur by reason of such breach, including the cost of recovering possession of the Leased Premises, reasonable attorneys' fees, and the worth at the time of such termination of the excess, if any, of the amount of rent and charges equivalent to rent reserved in this Lease for the remainder of the stated term over the then reasonable rental value of the Leased Premises for the remainder of the stated term, all of which amounts shall be immediately due and payable from Tenant to Owner. In determining the annual Minimum Rent and other charges which would be payable by Tenant hereunder subsequent to termination, the annual Minimum Rent payable per annum for the remainder of the stated term shall be increased by an amount equal to the average Percentage Rents payable by Tenant from the commencement of the term to the time of termination, or during the preceding three (3) full calendar years, whichever period is shorter. SECTION 20.03. Payment of Expenses In addition to any other remedies Owner may have at law or in equity and/or under this Lease, Tenant shall pay upon demand all of Owner's costs, charges and expenses, including fees of counsel, agents and others retained by Owner, incurred in connection with the recovery of sums due under this Lease, because of the breach of any covenant under this Lease, or for any other relief against Tenant.

Tenant's obligations under this Section shall survive the expiration of the term of this Lease. SECTION 20.04. OWNER'S RIGHT TO CURT DEFAULTS If Tenant fails to perform any agreement or obligation on its part to be performed under this Lease, Owner shall have the right (i) if no emergency exists, to perform the same after giving fifteen (15) days' notice to Tenant, and (ii) in any emergency situation to perform the same immediately without notice or delay. For the purpose of rectifying Tenant's defaults as aforesaid, Owner shall have the right to enter the Leased Premises. Tenant shall on demand reimburse Owner for the costs and expenses incurred by Owner in rectifying Tenant's defaults as aforesaid, including reasonable attorney's fees and an administrative fee equal to fifteen percent (15%) of all such costs. Except for gross negligence by Owner, Owner shall not be liable or in any way responsible for any loss, inconvenience, annoyance or damage resulting to Tenant or anyone holding under Tenant for any action taken by Owner pursuant to this Section. Any act or thing done by Owner pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of any such default by Tenant or a waiver of any covenant, term or condition herein contained or the performance thereof. SECTION 20.05. WAIVER OF RIGHT OF REDEMPTION Tenant hereby expressly waives any and all rights of redemption granted by or under any present or future laws in the event of Tenant being evicted or dispossessed for any cause or in the event of Owner obtaining possession of the Leased Premises by reason of the violation by Tenant of any of the covenants or condition) of this Lease or otherwise. SECTION 20.06. WAIVER AND SUBSEQUENT DEFAULTS No waiver of any covenant or condition or of the breach of any covenant or condition of this Lease shall be taken to constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach of such covenant or condition or to justify or authorize the 35 nonobservance on any other occasion of the same or of any other covenant or condition hereof, nor shall the acceptance of rent by Owner at any time when Tenant has breached or is in default under any covenant or condition hereof, with or without knowledge of any breach or default by Tenant, be construed as a waiver of such breach or default or of Owner's right to terminate this Lease on account of such default, nor shall any waiver or indulgence granted by Owner to Tenant be taken as an estoppel against Owner, regardless of Owner's knowledge of any such preceding breach. It is expressly understood that if at any time Tenant shall be in default in any of its covenants or conditions hereunder, an acceptance by Owner of rental during the continuance of such default or the failure on the part of Owner promptly to avail itself of such other right or remedies as Owner may have, shall not be construed as a waiver of such default, but Owner may at anytime thereafter, if such default continues, terminate this Lease on account of such default in the manner hereinbefore provided. No covenant, term or condition of this Lease shall be deemed to have been waived by Owner, unless such waiver is in writing by Owner. SECTION 20.07. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF In the event of any breach or threatened breach by Tenant of any of the terms and provisions of this Lease, Owner shall have the right to injunctive relief as if no other remedies were provided herein for such breach, SECTION 20.09. CUMULATIVE REMEDIES The rights and remedies given to Owner by this Lease shall be deemed to be cumulative, and no one of such rights or remedies shall be exclusive at law or in equity of the rights and remedies which Owner might otherwise have by virtue of a default under this Lease. The exercise of one such right or remedy by Owner shall not impair Owner's standing to exercise any other right or remedy. SECTION 20.09. TENANT'S BANKRUPTCY OR INSOLVENCY Should Tenant file, or have filed against it, a petition under the Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. Section 101 et. seq. as from time to time amended), then this Lease shall be in default, and Owner shall be entitled to all rights and remedies hereunder and otherwise. (a) In the event that Tenant shall become a debtor under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code and Tenant shall elect to assume this Lease for its own use or for the purpose of assigning the same or otherwise, such election or assignment may be made only if all of the provisions of this Section 20809 are satisfied. If Tenant shall fall to elect to assume this Lease within sixty (60) days after the filing of a petition or such additional time as provided by the Bankruptcy Court within such sixty (so) day period, then this Lease shall be deemed to have been rejected.
