TINLEY PARK, Ill. -- A store where five women, including a Michiana nurse, were gunned down in February, 2008, reopened this week under a new brand, reports The Truth's news partner WNDU.
Jeni Bishop, 34, of South Bend, was in the Tinely Park, Ill., Lane Bryant when an armed robber came in. Bishop and four other women were killed before the man fled. He was not found by police and no arrests have been made.
The store reopened this week as a TJ Maxx.
In a statement, T.J. Maxx's parent company said it was unaware of the former Lane Bryant location's past when the lease on the property was signed, reports The Chicago Tribune.
The company announced a $10,000 donation late last month to a charity created to honor the women.
