JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Mayor Tony Yarber brought good economic news for Jackson.

Yarber announced the future opening of retailers with one occupying a location that was sitting empty.

Two retailers, one new to the region, are moving to buildings along County Line Road.

"We're extremely excited about what's going on in terms of economic development around the city," said Mayor Yarber.

That excitement is about the new retailers which are bringing jobs and shopping options to Jackson.

A home decor store called "At Home," will occupy the former location of Sam's Club, more than 40,000 square feet of retail space.

Renovations are currently underway to give At Home, based in Houston Texas, a new Jackson home.

"We're really excited about what's happening at the old Sam's building not vacant two years, and we've already been able to see that back fill with the quality home store," added Yarber. 

A familiar name, Burlington, will also be moving in nearby at the old Barnes and Noble location and extends to include space previously occupied by Office Depot and Tuesday Morning.

Tuesday Morning has moved to a new location in the same plaza.

"I just bought a new home, trying to get it furnished," said Anna Bess Ridgewood who was shopping nearby when she heard about the new retails stores coming to the area.

The new Jackson homeowner chose to purchase a home instead of moving to the surrounding suburbs. The St. Dominic nurse is thrilled about the new shopping opportunities.

"Jackson has potential to grow, and we're grateful that some other stores are moving in because Sam's recently moved out," added Ridgewood. "We were very disappointed about that, but we're looking forward to Jackson growing some more." 

City leaders have been working for more than seven months on the At Home and Burlington deals. Officials expect At Home to open in May. 

"We're demoing out the front of the store here, taking these canopies down and demoing out a lot of the interior," said Jason Mitcham of Allco Construction. "Everything on the inside of the store will be completely brand new." 

No timetable has been announced for the Burlington grand opening.
