You diehard Marshalls fans can stop holding your breath. The trendy discounter has begun hiring staff for its new East Wenatchee store and has set its grand opening for Oct. 2.

 A swing by the department chain’s new 23,400-square-foot space at Wenatchee Valley Mall reveals work crews hammering to finish interior work designed by the store’s parent, Massachusetts-based TJX Companies (Marshalls, T.J. Maxx and four smaller chains).

 A spokesman at Wenatchee WorkSource reported that the Marshalls hiring event on Monday and Tuesday drew around 200 applicants for the store's 90 positions.

At the end of 2013, Marshalls had 942 stores in 42 states and Puerto Rico. Its sister company, T.J. Maxx, had 1,079 stores spread over 49 states. TJX estimates long-term growth of 3,000 stores combined for the two companies.
