“The Children’s Place” has grand opening in Upper Valley Mall

The Upper Valley Mall and the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce celebrated the official grand opening and ribbon cutting of The Children’s Place on September 24. The Children’s Place is located directly across from Old Navy in the mall. The retailer occupies a 5,000 square-foot space and specializes in children’s merchandise, ranging in sizes from newborn to 14-years-old for both boys and girls.

Upper Valley Mall Manager Brenda LaBonte was quoted in the Springfield News-Sun as saying, “Everybody has been very excited about this opening. Springfield is very family-oriented, so this is a good location for a store that offers very fashionable children’s clothing at a very good price.”

According to the News-Sun, The Children’s Place Retail Stores, Inc. designs, contracts to manufacture and sells merchandise under the proprietary “The Children’s Place” brand name. As of July 31, the Company owned and operated 977 stores and an online store at www.childrensplace.com.

The opening of this store created 10 jobs, both part-time and full-time, and according to the store’s manager, they will be looking for even more help during their busy holiday season.
