HARRISBURG -- Another business is moving back into the Harrisburg strip mall that was destroyed in the Leap Day tornado.

Maurices has been in a temporary building since the 2012 storm leveled the mall. Now, workers are putting the finishing touches on a space for the retailer inside the newly rebuilt strip mall.

Managers say this a great opportunity for Harrisburg to make a strong comeback from the tornado.

"We really want to see Harrisburg and the communities around just thrive and grow and not be defeated by something like that," says store manager Candice Williams.
The grand opening for the new Maurices in Harrisburg is set for Friday, Jan. 31.
