Marshalls to open May 15

New life is coming to the old Mervyn’s building, that sat vacant for so long. It’s been divided up to house three businesses, all new to Ridgecrest. The first, Marshalls, will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 15 at 7:30 a.m., followed by an official opening at 8 a.m. The store will be open until 10 p.m. that day.

Marshalls is primarily a retail clothing business, selling designer and brand name clothing and shoes. This store will take up 24,529 square feet of the building.

The other two stores, Jo-Ann Fabrics and Famous Footwear, are remodeling but have not yet announced opening dates.

In addition to providing a new shopping option for Ridgecrest, the new store will add approximately 50 full-time and part-time jobs to the area.

In celebration of its new Ridgecrest location, Marshalls will contribute to the local community by presenting a $5,000 donation to Disabled American Veterans at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The store’s ongoing hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
