Island City’s new clothing store rue21, located in front of Grocery Outlet off Walton Road, celebrated its opening with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony last week. Sharing the honors of wielding the scissors are the four store managers, from left, Heather Hunt, Lindsay Hodgson, Ashley Johnson and Jessica Bingaman. The store caters to the teen fashion market although, according to its website, rue21 “is a favorite with almost anyone looking for fashion that is young, fresh and affordable.”
