JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – A crowd of people began to come in as TJ Maxx prepared to open their doors in Jamestown.

The Jamestown High School Pep Band played in the mall entrance of the store before the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting. The 20,000 square-foot store holds a variety of items from clothing and toys to home furnishings and shoes. Store manager Lindsey Vanhall addressed the group before the ceremony.

Lindsey announced that they would be donating $500 to the Jamestown High School Pep Band and $10,000 would be donated to the Community Action Region VI Head Start Program.

The first shopper through the doors was Kylie Weber. She says she’s long anticipated the store opening. Her first purchase was “a bunch of Rae Dunn.”

Located inside the previous location held by JCPenney, the Jamestown TJ Maxx is one of more than 4,000 stores nationwide. It is the third TJ Maxx in North Dakota.
