The Grand Opening celebration for this Orlando store will occur on Thursday August 26, 2010 from 6pm - 10pm and will include an open bar & hors d’oeuvres. During this time a limited number of free prizes and giveaways will be given away by random drawing including:

- Tennis Racquets

Hope you are able to come out, at least enjoy the open bar right?
