Marshalls, one of the nation’s leading off-price retailers, will open at River Oaks Center on August 8, according to a press release issued late last week. Marshalls said Camden shoppers will find a selection of high-quality, on-trend, brand name and designer merchandise in ladies, men, juniors, kids, shoes, accessories, home, pet, beauty and more.

“Our newest store in Camden will offer an ever-changing selection of high-quality, on-trend, and brand-name merchandise at the amazing prices that Marshalls is known for. Our buyers create a broad and exciting mix that offers exceptional values for the entire family, and we’re excited to bring this experience to a new neighborhood,” Marshalls President Tim Miner said. “With thousands of new items delivered to our stores every day, we know our shoppers will find values that are surprising and unexpected every time they shop.”

The grand opening on Aug. 8 will take place from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The festivities will include a number of giveaways.

The store, at 2209 West DeKalb St., Suite F, is 22,000 square feet in size. Regular store hours will be from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. In addition to its selection of brand name and designer fashions, the Marshalls in Camden will feature The Cube, “a hip, in-store boutique of contemporary fashions.”

“With thousands of new items arriving weekly, it’s like entering a new store with every visit. Our buyers shop year-round, not just seasonally and work with brands, designers, and manufacturers all over the world to offer a mix of high-quality merchandise,” Miner said.

In addition to providing a new shopping option for local residents, the new store plans to add approximately 60 full and part-time jobs to the area.

As part of celebrating its new location in Camden, Marshalls will contribute to the local community by presenting a $10,000 donation to the Family Resource Center at the Aug. 8 ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m.
