DOVER -- Despite the threat of rain Friday, scores of people patiently lined up to wait for the doors to open at Five Below, a national chain store where products cost $5 or less.
Customers wrapped around the side of the Dover Towne Center, holding umbrellas to ward off the increasing raindrops. Employees opened the doors a few minutes earlier than the scheduled 10 a.m. grand opening, shortly before a downpour.
Other stores in the shopping center were receiving deliveries and an employee at Ulta, a national beauty store, said it would open April 15.
The Dover Towne Center, on North DuPont Highway, replaces the long empty Wal-Mart, which moved farther north in October 2011.
