A new electronics and appliance store opens today next to the Valley Mall in Hagerstown.
REX is in the building that housed the Luskin's store that closed in late summer.
Store manager Harold Schrake said the store is part of a chain based in Dayton, Ohio. The 80-year-old company is one of the fastest growing chains in the business, with 227 stores across the United States, he said.
The Hagerstown store is one of two in Maryland, Schrake said. A store opened in Cumberland three weeks ago.
The company will open a store in Chambersburg, Pa., next week, Schrake said. In addition to serving as local store manager, he is also district manager.
