Hamilton Place adds Maurices

Maurices, a leading specialty store and authority for the savvy, fashion conscious woman with a twenty-something attitude, will open Saturday at Hamilton Place mall.

"Maurices is a fashion forward women's retailer that will provide our shoppers with another option for affordable, trendy apparel," Hamilton Place General Manager Dan Wolfe said in a statement. "We are thrilled to welcome them to Hamilton Place."

Maurices is located on the upper level of the mall near Regis. Grand opening activities will include special sales and a $100 shopping spree giveaway.

Furloughs hit IRS offices

The Internal Revenue Service is closing its 400 offices until next Monday in a cost-saving measure due to the federal budget sequester.

As was the case with previous furlough days on May 24 and June 14, IRS employees will be furloughed without pay on Friday.

The shutdown will limit most IRS activity but it will have no impact on any tax-filing or tax-payment deadlines. The remaining scheduled furlough days are July 22 and Aug. 30.
