    The store will feature $6 million worth of innovative energy-efficient equipment, fixtures, lighting and high-end decor, as well as $1.7 million in shelf product inventory.

    With 70,000 square feet of retail shopping and warehouse space, the store, which will serve as the anchor tenant at the new retail center, is expected to employ 200 new full-time and part-time associates.

    The Kenny family runs four other stores in Delaware. The most recent one to open was a location at Christina Crossing in downtown Wilmington in December 2008.
