Hundreds of people line up this morning for the grand opening of a department store in Union Gap.

The J.C. Penney store opened its doors to the public, after the downtown Yakima store closed nearly 12 years ago.

That makes it the third store to open at the mall this week.

Cabela's opened yesterday and Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar opened on Wednesday.

The store is employing 115 part time and full time workers.
