VACAVILLE -ÊThe latest addition to the new Nut Tree Village Shopping Center will debut Friday when Sport Chalet opens its doors for the first time.

The Southern California-based sporting goods company is having a three-day grand opening starting Friday morning to celebrate the opening of its newest store.

"It's almost going to be a little mini-fair in our parking lot," said Sport Chalet spokeswoman Amber Hays.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be at 9 a.m. on Friday with the store opening to follow at 9:30 a.m. Grand opening events will continue throughout the weekend with BMX riders, skateboarders and others performing in front of the store.

The 41,600-square-foot Sport Chalet store is one component in a massive redevelopment effort under way at the Nut Tree site in Vacaville. The project includes 325,000 square feet of retail space, 180 town homes, 150,000 square feet of office space and a family-oriented amusement park.

Officials with the firm handling the leases could not be reached for comment on Monday.

Among the other tenants already announced are BestBuy, Old Navy and Borders. Some of the stores have already moved into the shopping center and others are expected to through the end of the year.
