Shopping enthusiasts prepare for UMall grand openings

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Excitement is building in South Burlington for two big store openings.

Target's grand opening is scheduled for Sunday, October 21st at 8 a.m. at the University Mall. The finishing touches are being worked on inside the store. When it opens, it will be the state's first Target, and the last state in the country to get one of the box stores.

Shoppers like Kevin Daniels say they are excited to see what's new. "Oh, I found it -- cool. I found it -- really cool. There are some stores around here that don't carry the things that Target does, so with the Target here it's going to be so awesome. I'm looking forward to this. I really do. It's going to be awesome," he said.

H&M is also opening its first Vermont location in the University Mall. Its grand opening is this Thursday at noon. And it's also offering a way to swap out some of your old clothing in exchange for a 15 percent coupon to the store. The old clothing will be recycled or reused worldwide.
