GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich.— A new store opening in Jenison is the first of its kind in the country.
At Home is located at 334 Chicago Drive, in the former Target storefront. Store manager Christopher Scholle says construction crews must finish adding signs to the new façade, repaving the front area and installing the store's front doors. Store employees are expected to finish stocking shelves by Wednesday. Scholle says At Home will celebrate its grand opening Jan. 23.
At Home is operated by Garden Ridge, a Texas-based retail chain that sells home decor items. Scholle says the At Home store is a new concept for Garden Ridge. A second At Home store is expected to open in the former Kmart Store, located at 4620 Stadium Drive in Kalamazoo, on Jan. 23 as well.
The Jenison store has hired 24 employees; four are full-time and 20 are part-time.
