Bridgewater: Mall Upgrade Means Dozens Of New Jobs

Dozens of new retail jobs will be coming to the South Shore as a host of new stores are set to open in the new year. Michael Levy of the Bridgewater Mall has confirmed a multi-million dollar makeover at the building is underway. They have also secured several new tenants which are set to move into the mall in the new year - they include Winners, Sport Chek, Mark's and Leon's. Co-owner of Leon's in Coldbrook, Colin Lewis says they are excited about expanding to the South Shore.

Lewis says they hope to be open by March. The bid to attract new tenants to the mall began when Zellers and a few other stores closed earlier this year. An exact total on the number of new employment opportunities is not known at the point.
