Shop If You Must

Columbia Talk plans to spend most of the day near a baseball diamond but the national pastime has nothing on America's true weekend passion---shopping! And we have new stores to go to--the Gateway Overlook shopping center opens today near Route 175 and I-95. Here's what's there according to the Sun:

"Though sections of the new Gateway Overlook shopping center still are dusty construction zones, several stores, including a Best Buy, Office Depot and Five Below, are scheduled to open today. An ULTA store is to open in mid-June.

"By the end of the year, the sprawling commercial development, on 123 acres at Routes 175 and 108, is expected to have a Trader Joe's, a Loehman's, a Lowe's, a Costco, two banks and several free-standing national chain restaurants, including Houlihan's, Mimi's Cafe and On the Border Mexican Grill.

"Robert Byrne, vice president of General Growth Properties, which is developing the site, said the finished shopping center will also have a 57,000- square-foot building with smaller tenants, including restaurants and a retail store called Golf Galaxy."
