Roses has begun to move into the old Fred’s location on Halls Ferry Road.


Today the first truck showed up with materials to help get the store prepared for a “soft opening on September 12th,” according to District Manager Jeff Leach. “We are planning to do their grand opening on September 26th.”

The Vicksburg Roses will feature a huge assortment of name brand goods and will hire as much of the old Fred’s staff as possible.

Included in the hire is former Fred’s Store Manager Barry Bingham.

In addition to bringing back as many of the old Fred’s staff as they can, Roses is hosting a job fair next Wednesday and Thursday, August 21 and 22, at the store location at 3427 Halls Ferry Road. Hours for the job fair have yet to be determined. Look for a notice on the door.
