A new tenant at Northwoods Mall is officially open for business.
The Roomplace held a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning. It's the first store in the Peoria area.
And with a grand opening, they'll of course need employees. The Roomplace is hiring for between 35 and 50 jobs. Some of those positions are still available
"We fell in love with the community. We fell in love with the store and once I envisioned where we were going to end we thought it was the best place in Peoria. It has a great presence," said The Roomplace CEO Paul Adams.
In the crowd were Mayor Jim Ardis and at-large Peoria city councilwoman Beth Jensen.
The Roomplace is headquartered in Lombard, Illinois and has 26 stores in all.
