MGM Springfield making sure everything is ready for grand opening

Hampden County

MGM Springfield will open in less than two weeks.

Mike Mathis, president, and chief operating officer told 22News on Monday that the nearly billion-dollar complex is right on schedule.

Matthis said that no details are being overlooked and nothing is being taken for granted.

“We actually have our employees staying in the rooms to test things out,” Matis explained. “Make sure the lights are on, the toilets are flushing, all those final touches, art on the walls.”

Mathis said they’re 99 percent ready for the August 24 opening. Even MGM Springfield’s 3,000 employees are already in uniform.
