Locals now have a new place to shop for children's clothing.
The Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for The Children's Place at the Colony Square Mall in Zanesville on Monday.
"I think they've got very good prices and a great selection of kids clothes so you can't beat that," said Colony Square Mall Marketing Director Kevin Pinson.
The Children's Place has more than 1,000 stores nationwide. Pinson said the quota for the day was filled within the first hour of its grand opening. Mayor Butch Zwelling believes this will be a great addition to the area.
"It's not just our community, this is the shopping center for all of southeastern Ohio and about a half a million people with the cost gasoline people are not going to drive to Columbus to shop," he said.
The Cookie Store will also have its grand opening later this week. The mall is now at 78% capacity.
