Macy's to open March 20

Preview shopping held March 16

Correction :

The previous version of the online article stated that the Macy's in Victorville will hold the grand opening on March 13. The correct date of the grand opening is March 20.

VICTORVILLE • Macy's will hold the grand opening of its Victorville store on March 20, company officials said.

The national retailer will host a Charity Preview Shopping Day on March 16, offering a sneak peak of the new store for those who buy tickets from local charities, according to a press release. Participating charities will sell $5 tickets and get to keep all ticket sales.

All local charities and nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) status as well as local schools and churches are eligible to participate. There is no limit to the number of organizations that can participate.

Tickets will also be sold at the door on March 16, with proceeds of those ticket sales going to the participating charities.

Macy’s announced in November 2011 it will open a store at the Mall of Victor Valley. Macy’s will take over Gottchalks’ former anchor spot on the north side of the mall, which has been vacant since Gottchalks went bankrupt in 2009.

The mall began construction in late March to expand the 72,000-square-foot site into the parking lot, developing a 103,000-square-foot, single-story store.

Macy’s will bring an expected 140 jobs, according to the company.

While the new store won’t sell furniture, it will include clothing for men, women, juniors and kids; cosmetics; fragrances; jewelry; accessories; shoes; and home goods.

Previously Victorville residents had to drive a few dozen miles to reach either the Macy’s at Inland Center Mall in San Bernardino or Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga.
