Officials with Big Creek Crossing have confirmed a Gordmans department store will be opening its doors this fall.

The discount store will be going in the current Stage location on the north end of the mall. Stage and Gordmans are owned by the same company, and executives felt a Gordmans store would be a good fit for the Hays market, said James Younger, property manager at Big Creek Crossing.

Stage expects to begin its closing sales next week, he said. After that store closes, there will be some remodeling and light construction before the space reopens as a Gordmans. The store will offer a completely different product line, he said.

The Gordmans store locator website lists a store on Vine Street in Hays.
