A leading specialty store offering the latest fashion for guys and gals opens today in Manteca.

Claudia Diaz is the store manager for rue21 at 2236 Daniels St. in the Stadium Retail Center.

“It’s not just clothing and apparel for teenagers,” she said Wednesday prior to ribbon-cutting ceremony. “We actually offer something for people of all ages.”

Rue21 will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. each Sunday.

Diaz has been with the company formerly known as Pennsylvania Fashion Inc. for nearly two years. She previously worked at the rue21 Tracy store.

The Manteca business is located next door to Justice and two doors down from Payless Shoe Source, employing a staff of 10 associates.

“Most of the employees are local,” Diaz added.

With over 450 stores and headquartered in Warrendale, PA, rue21 continues to expand at a fast rate, with plans of having 1,000 stores by 2013.

Besides the latest in fashion, rue21 produces five fragrances for girls – Tarea, Rue, Revert Eco, Sparkle, and the newest, Pink Ice.

Many of these exclusive fragrances, in fact, will be on sale for $9.99 each during the grand opening.
