(CHUBBUCK) – Herberger’s Department Store hosted its grand opening at the Pine Ridge Mall Wednesday. The first 500 visitors were given complimentary gifts while other shoppers benefited from specials being offered throughout the day. The store occupies the former Dillard’s location, which closed in 2008. Officials with the greater Pocatello Chamber of Commerce say they’re excited to see a new store open after years of vacancies and closures. The company says this is the first Herberger’s store to open in the Gem State.
