When is the new At Home store opening in Rochester, Minnesota?

Huge thanks to Jay Wiech, Store Director, for taking a few moments to send those photos for a sneak peek!  As you can tell from the photos, the team has been working hard at getting everything ready for opening day!

Last week, I shared the news that the official Grand Opening was on March 5th.  But, the soft opening is happening now and the doors are open as of February 16th.
