"This is a nice store and I was really surprised," said Linda Pringle. She just happened to be driving by and saw that people were inside.

She said the new store comes more than a dozen new jobs."

There will be a renewed focus on keeps the items on the sales floor fresh. They will ring a bell whenever they put out something shoppers haven't seen before.

"One of the things we've done too is pick up our rotation. You'll see color tags that allow us to know when something went into circulation," McKinley said. "Every little bit does pay it forward to the point where we are all better off. It is an amazing thing."

And for shoppers like Linda Pringle it is the perfect combination of deals and doing good.

"I'm glad it is here because I told my husband we are going to go there," Pringle said.

The store is located near Walmart and Sweet Frog.
