Look out below! Five Below has just opened up at The Shops at Atlas Park in Glendale, offering name-brand products for deeply discounted prices.

Five Below — which gets its name because all items in the store are priced between one and five dollars — opened its doors in Atlas Park at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 4, where a line of customers braved the dark skies and rainy weather as they anxiously waited to get their hands on the discount store’s great deals.

Inside the store, customers roamed around the many different sections ranging from candies, games, clothing, beauty supplies, decor, workout gear, tech, seasonal items, and much more.

Customers, however, do not come to Five Below just for the prices. According to one Glendale resident, customers get top-notch service from the friendly staff.

“I came here today for the store itself,” said Richard Epstein, who was shopping with his wife and two sons. “They have everything we need for much cheaper than you can find anywhere else. I visited the store in New Jersey and it’s just as good there. The store is always clean and the staff is helpful. If you don’t see something on the shelves, you just have to ask one of the workers and they will try and help you get it.”

To celebrate their grand opening, Five Below was giving out either a free tote bag or drawstring backpack for customers who made a purchase during the opening day only.

Five Below is located on the first floor at The Shops at Atlas Park, at 8000 Cooper Ave., and is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
