Celebrating the grand opening of Cost Plus World Market, Glendale city officials and members of the Glendale Chamber of Commerce gathered for a ribbon cutting on February 28. On the morning of the event, customers were lined up in front of the store waiting for the doors to open. The first 200 customers through the door received a free reusable World Market tote bag.

“We’re thrilled to open our new location and welcome our Cherry Creek area customers to an even larger location filled with unique and affordable items for home decorating, entertaining and gift giving,” said Carrie Crooker, Cost Plus World Market SVP of Stores. “We look forward to continuing to serve our friends and neighbors in this great community!”
