We've all been very patently anticipating the grand opening of the new Bayshore Town Center, and while we're still about a month shy of new exciting stores such as Apple, H & M and Trader Joe's, the mall's Kohl's Department Store hosts its official grand re-opening Thursday, Oct. 5 at 8 a.m.

Bayshore Town Center's Kohl's store has undergone a transformation and many new comforts and conveniences have been incorporated into the new store design, including spacious fitting rooms with lounge areas, updated restrooms, as well as redesigned customer service and checkout stations.

As any “word nerd” can attest, you never know when inspiration will strike, so from a very early age Julie has rarely been seen sans pen and little notebook. At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee it seemed only natural that she major in journalism. When offered her an avenue to combine her writing and the city she knows and loves in late 2004, she knew it was meant to be. Around the office, she answers to a plethora of nicknames, including “Lar,” (short for “Larry,” which is short for “Lawrence”) as well as the mysteriously-sourced “Bill Murray.”
