A new store that's filling half of the space of the former JCPenney store at Hamilton Mall will be opening just in time for holiday shopping.

The Press of Atlantic City reports Shoppers World is planning on opening Thanksgiving Day.

We first broke the story back on Halloween that the discount retailer would be taking-over the lower level of the former JCPenney store at Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing. Since that time, workers have been seen inside the store remodeling the space, including removing the escalator that joined both floors.

On their website, Shoppers World describes themselves as,

Today, Shoppers World operates 40 department stores with locations in New York, New Jersey, Indiana, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois & Texas. Each store carries a full line of casual and dress wear for men, women and children of all ages, from newborn to juniors to plus size. In addition, they offer an incredible assortment of shoes, lingerie, accessories and the largest selection of school and work uniforms around. Shoppers World also carries an amazing collection of home furnishings, housewares, linens and home decor. Rounding out our value driven assortment is a variety of fun year round seasonal holiday merchandise and toys.

JCPenney at Hamilton Mall closed this past summer following the closure of Sears at the end of 2018. However, it hasn't been all negative news for the mall -- it was recently revealed that Forever 21's Hamilton Mall store will not be closing.
