HomeGoods, a discount home décor store, is set to open its third Queens location in College Point next month.
The store will be located at 134-01 20th Ave. and its grand opening is scheduled for 8 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3. It will be the 25th HomeGoods store to open in New York state.

The new store will be over 23,000 square feet and will employ 65 full-time and part-time employees.
The store will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Sundays. The store will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. on its grand opening day.
