Rim Country shoppers will soon have a new venue for clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as home gifts.
Stage store is opening May 4 at 400 E. Highway 260 in the Rim Country Mall.
Stage has a reputation for bringing style, selection and value, along with name brands, such as Tommy Hilfiger, Liz Claiborne, Chaps, Levi's, Carter's and Nike to small communities.
Stage will hold a four-day Grand Opening celebration beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:45 a.m. Thursday, May 4 and the introduction of Melissa Davis, store manager, and her staff.
Hours for the grand opening are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 5 and 6, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 7.
Free canvas tote bags and matching umbrellas will be given to the first 150 customers, age 16 and older, to arrive at the store on Thursday and Friday.
Customers who come in on Saturday and Sunday will get a $10 Reward Card to use on their next purchase at Stage.
Throughout the festivities, shoppers may register to win one of three $500 Stage gift cards and enjoy special savings on purchases.
Continued savings will be made available to customers 50 and older through a special discount program, and to others with a store-branded credit card and a VIP Rewards Program.
The store will eventually have a staff of 10, but a crew of more than 40 was hired to get the business up and running.
The Stage store's regular hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
