A new 23,000-square-foot Beall's Outlet store is now open in Marathon.
The store had a "soft" opening last week, but it was obvious word spread quickly. Crowds have filling the aisles, and the store's parking lot is now a bottleneck.
The new Beall's takes the place of a 10,000-square-foot Beall's that was in the same plaza at U.S. 1 and 107th Street. The new space formerly was occupied by Office Depot, which last year moved into a smaller space, around 7,000 square feet, at mile marker 50 oceanside.
A Dollar Tree store will move into the old Beall's space. That could happen in the spring.
