TWEC.COM Offers Gift Suggestions for Holiday Season

ALBANY, N.Y., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ — Every year around this time, the
mind-numbing stress of who to buy for, where to buy, and how much to spend
rapidly drowns out the joy and high spirits we’re supposed to love about the
holiday season. A gift of music and movies is always a safe bet, and TWEC.COM
(http://www.twec.com), online hub of Trans World Entertainment Corporation
(Nasdaq: TWMC), has some great ideas you can take advantage of without ever
setting foot into a store.

TWEC.COM puts Trans World Entertainment stores like Coconut’s Music and
Movies, Strawberries Music, Spec’s, Planet Music, Camelot Music, The Wall and
F.Y.E. right at your fingertips 24 hours a day, seven days a week, carrying
more than 800,000 of your favorite CDs, DVDs, video games, and more.

  • You might not believe it, but it’s Fall of 2000 and Madonna is once
    again topping the charts with her newest album “Music.” A perfect gift
    for all the material girls and boys in your life, this artist for the
    ages has earned her own section in everyone’s music library.

  • A newcomer to the world of music but definitely no stranger to stardom,
    Oscar DeLaHoya (yes, the boxer) scores a knockout this season with his

    get your gloves on this album.

  • The boy band train of success may never come to an end if they keep
    putting out hits year after year. “Black and Blue” by the Backstreet
    Boys is the highly anticipated follow-up to their multi-platinum hit
    “Millennium”, and 98 degrees answers with “Revelation,” featuring the
    smash “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).”

  • “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.” If the name of
    the album doesn’t intrigue you enough to make it the perfect holiday
    gift, then the fact that its Limp Bizkit’s latest creation undoubtedly
    will.

  • No gift this season will be complete without a new touch of “la vida
    loca.” Ricky Martin is back with his sophomore English-language
    release, featuring his latest hit “She Bangs,” already tearing up the
