The Associated Press is reporting that the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority will open its Massachusetts storefront office on Monday.

According to reports, MTGA chief operating officer Jeff Hartmann and others will join local leaders for the opening.

The Mohegans have announced their interest in bidding on a casino in western Massachusetts should that state ever legalize casino gambling. The Mohegans have already entered into a 99-year lease on property (separate from the storefront) that could potentially be used for a casino and which will cost "millions," according a senior MTGA executive.
