Plans for a Goody’s department store in Havelock are back on track, with a spokesman confirming a planned April 18 opening.

"It is back on. We’ll be putting out a press release in a couple of weeks," said Jennifer Grammar, brand marketing director for Stage Stores, parent company of Goody’s.

Initial plans for the store had slowed, but came back to the forefront late last year and early this year.

Grammar said plans call for a ribbon-cutting event at 8:45 a.m. right before the store opens at 9 a.m. on April 18. She said other events will surround the grand opening.

"We will be giving away free tote bags to the first 150 customers," Grammar said. "And on Friday, we will be having a mystery gift card giveaway, so the first 50 customers in lines will receive a gift card. Everybody is a winner, but one lucky customer will get a $100 gift card. The gift cards range in value from $5 to $100."

She said customers would have the opportunity to register for two $250 gift cards during the grand opening. A 20 percent off shopping pass would also be available during the store’s grand opening weekend, she said.

The store will be located at 349 West Main St., the former site of Gregg’s Furniture and the A&P grocery store. The building contains 12,200 feet of retail space with additional stock space in the rear of the building.
