MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A new tenant with big ears and a tail is moving into Eastdale Mall, mall officials confirmed Monday.

"We are excited to welcome Chuck E. Cheese's to Eastdale Mall," stated Dave Schloss, Manager of Eastdale Mall. "Their dynamic new store format will be the perfect addition to round out Eastdale Mall's line-up of family entertainment and retail offerings." 

Michelle Chism, Director of Corp. Communications for Chuck E. Cheese's parent company, CEC Entertainment, says possession of the mall space will happen in May and the new store should be open by late summer or early fall of 2013.

"It's always exciting to open a new store and elevate the Chuck E. Cheese's experience," Chism said. "We will continue to offer the same family entertainment value in a fresh environment with updated games and design in our new Eastdale Mall location."

Chism says the company's current facility on the Southern Boulevard will continue operating until the mall location opens. At that time, employees of the old store will transfer to the new location and the Blvd. location will be closed. 

The family entertainment center will feature nearly 13,000 square feet in a brand new space with an entrance facing the outside of the mall. The store will be in the Dillards wing of the mall, across from Lenscrafters.

The new location will offer a variety of pizza, a salad bar, appetizers, desserts, wings, sandwiches a musical and digital comic entertainment show, family oriented games, rides,  prizes, merchandise and birthday parties.

The announcement comes just days after a major tenant at the mall, Carmike Cinemas, announced it was closing its doors in favor of a new facility on Chantilly Parkway. Mall officials said they continue to work to close a deal with another tenant to fill that space.
