FORT BLISS - Freedom Crossing at Ft. Bliss is cause for celebration today.
Grand opening ceremonies were held this morning for the world's first open-air shopping center on a military installation.
You will find a renovated 217,000 square foot exchange on post - more than twice the size of the old PX.
You will also find the first Buffalo Wild Wings as well as a 10-screen, 1,712-seat Grand Theatre.
Freedom Crossing broke ground on July 17, 2009.
The $100 million retail development will serve the Fort Bliss community, which includes more than 118,000 active military, retirees and their family members.
