Are you excited? Their grand opening is less than a month as we speak! Initially, their grand opening was supposed to be at the end of March. But, they knew that we couldn’t wait for it any longer. Their super team worked really hard for the past few months and made the date of their grand opening earlier than expected. So, mark your calendars! 14th March 2019 falls on a Thursday.
