The Ahwatukee Marshalls Store officially opened it doors yesterday October 17, 2013.
Serving popcorn and on going raffles, the store was packed with shoppers, both veteran Marshalls shoppers such as myself and newbies.
The new store is located on the southwest corner of Ray Road and 48th Street.
It is located in the Ahwatukee Foothills Towne Center, which also houses Sprouts, The RoomStore and Party City in Ahwatukee.
