A new place to shop in Greenville had its grand opening Wednesday.
Kohl's department store is the first to open in the renovated area of the Carolina East mall. This is the first building to welcome customers since the mall was demolished leaving only Sears in the complex.
Crowds filled the store near maximum capacity for the opening, which offered sales and discounts for anxious shoppers.
The Greenville Kohl's is one of hundreds the department store plans to open around the country.
