Marshalls, one of the nation’s largest off-price retailers, will open a new store in the Bixby Knolls Shopping Center, 4450 Atlantic Ave., on Thursday, Aug. 5. The 21,286-square-foot store, which will feature a contemporary design and a single-line checkout for fast service, is expected to add approximately 60 full- and part-time jobs to the area.
“This project began as an idea nearly six years ago. Now, we will open a successful national ‘destination retail’ experience here in Bixby Knolls,” said 8th District Councilmember Rae Gabelich. “I am confident that the community, Marshalls and GASKA (the property-management company that owns the shopping center) will realize the success of our efforts.”
The new location will include a Shoe MegaShop that features designer and brand-name shoes for the whole family. “Our exciting new Marshalls Shoe MegaShop offers thousands of designer shoes with new styles arriving several times each week,” said Marshalls spokesperson Laura McDowell. “Just pick out your favorite style, and look for your size in the boxes under the display.”
In addition, Marshalls’s new high-energy in-store boutique, The CUBE, has a color scheme, music and lighting unique from the rest of the store. The boutique-inspired department is designed to allow young women to shop for fashion-forward designer clothes and accessories more easily. Rather than being organized by size, apparel in The CUBE is organized by style, with coordinating accessories nearby, so shoppers can create a head-to-toe outfit more easily.
Grand-opening hours will be 10am to 8pm. Regular store hours will be 9:30am to 9:30pm Mondays through Saturdays, and 11am to 8pm on Sundays.
