Just Duckies, a new gift and party store located at 42222 N. Arlington Heights Road in the Terramere shopping center in north Arlington Heights, is holding its grand opening Friday and Saturday, Aug. 16-17.

The gift shop just sells ducks -- Bud Ducks, collectible, affordable, bold and bubbly rubber ducks in hundreds of different styles from divas to punk rockers to paparazzi. Other merchandise includes duck-themed clothing, children's toys, and candy items. Just Duckies also has a private party room.
