Cato Fashions, a clothing store that primarily sells women's apparel, is set to open a new location next month in Mitchell.

The store will be located in the new retail center near East Spruce Street, directly north of Menards, and is scheduled to open May 1, according to Brian Griffin, the company's project manager.

There are more than 1,000 Cato stores in 32 states, according to the company's website.

Hibbett Sporting Goods, a national sporting goods store, and rue21, a national clothing store, have already opened at the new retail center. Sweet Fix Candy & Pop, formerly Dakota Candy, and Dakota Scents, each moved from a Main Street location and opened in the new retail center earlier this month.
