Grand Opening Events Begin on Thursday, July 9, 2015

Cost Plus World Market® is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its newly relocated Mission Viejo, California location. The store, located at Mission Viejo Freeway Center at 25262 El Paseo, will have all the great merchandise for which World Market® is known, but with expanded dining and living areas and more.

To start the grand opening celebration, a ribbon cutting with city officials and members of the local chamber of commerce on Thursday, July 9, 2015 at 9:00 am officially marks the opening of the store. The first 100 customers through the doors from Thursday, July 9 through Sunday, July 12, 2015 will receive a reusable tote bag. In addition, the store will host live entertainment and a twice-daily raffle prize of a $250 World Market gift card throughout the grand opening weekend. On Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, kids can meet The Poky Little Puppy from The Little Golden Books™ with Children’s Story Time in the store’s new reading activity area.

It’s a great time to discover what’s in store at Cost Plus World Market by visiting the new Mission Viejo store. The location has expanded dining and living furniture departments featuring “room settings” incorporating textiles, wall décor, artisan gifts, and more, giving customers the opportunity to envision a completely decorated room for their own home inspiration. The store also has an expanded wine assortment and will continue to host wine samplings throughout the year.
