 HUDSON'S GRAND TRAVERSE STORE REPORTS RECORD OPENING-DAY SALES
 SOUTHFIELD, Mich., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudson's Grand Traverse store opened to thousands of shoppers and record-breaking sales on July 23, the first full day of business.
 A record 8,000 transactions were recorded on Thursday, opening day, with sales exceeding the company goal for the day by more than 50 percent. Sales figures continued to exceed expectations for the three days following the opening.
 "Our Grand Traverse store was the No. 1 Hudson's store on opening day," said Marilyn Cunic, store manager. "We exceeded all of our sales expectations. Our customers told us they enjoyed the shopping experience. It felt like a party."
 The store was crowded with shoppers from the moment hundreds made a dash to be first in the doors following the 10 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony.
 Lt. Gov. Connie Binsfeld was a special guest at the opening ceremonies and assisted Cunic with the ribbon-cutting.
 Traverse Symphony Orchestra music director, Robert Hanson, composed a special fanfare played by the symphony during the opening event.
 "We're extremely pleased with community response," said Dennis Toffolo, Hudson's president. "Customers came from all over northern Michigan in addition to visitors to the Grand Traverse area."
 "We received such a warm reception from the community, the media and local officials," Toffolo continued. "We have a strong indication, based on our sales, that fall season trends were exceptionally well received."
