Roses department store to open in Hinton

HINTON, West Virginia (WVVA) – The Roses department store will fill a void left by Magic Mart when it closed its doors two years ago. City leaders say retail opportunities are trumping the job opportunities Roses brings to the city.

The happiness at the news of the new business reminds the Hinton City Manager of the impact felt in that community when Magic Mart disappeared.

There’s a lot to celebrate with Rose’s arrival: dozens of new jobs, hundreds of thousands of paychecks, and a new avenue to entice tourists to experience all that Hinton has to offer. Like the growing number of shops and restaurants.

Roses is the third new business announcement at Hinton in the past two months. The new rose location is scheduled to open this year on October 1.
