IT'S A RE-BIRTH IN A SENSE FOR NORTHTOWN MALL...THE
NORTH DIVISION SHOPPING CENTER HAS UNDERGONE SEVERAL
RENOVATIONS SINCE OPENING NEARLY 60 YEARS AGO!
BUT NOW, A NEW LOOK WILL COME WITH NEW STORES AND
KXLY-4'S JOHN HENDRICKS WORKING FOR YOU WITH WHAT'S
IN STORE FOR SPOKANE'S OLDEST SHOPPING MALL.
There is a lot of construction going on at the Northtown
Mall as they have begun a new renovation process.
This is a reality this is happening
Right now you can't walk between Macy's and Kohl's
A BIG CLASH, CLANG THEN BOOM FILL THE AIR AROUND NORTHTOWN
Queen is going to become our new front door.
AS CONSTRUCTION WORKERS BEGIN TEARING DOWN THIS WALL.
IT'S ALL PART OF A RENOVATION PROJECT TO REVITALIZE
They're wondering what's going on, they see all of
these vacant store fronts and behind the scenes we've
been ripping them to shreds just turning them into
SENIOR GENERAL MANAGER JOHN SHASKY SAYS THEY'RE ADDING
MORE PARKING SPACES, TWO NEW ENTRANCES, A WIFI CAFE,
SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS.
We really want to bring in some restaurants, no names
right now, I'll be anxious to announce them and let
you know who's coming, I think they will be great
additions to the center.
FOR SHOPPERS LIKE WHITNEY ROBINSON THE CONSTRUCTION
IS GOOD TO SEE.
If they put in any stores I hope they will be great
shopping places and places for people to get jobs
and hopefully kind of expand the community even more.
AS THE CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES MALL STAFF SAY THEY
WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW.
ALL STORES ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
Kohl's is open for business, if you are in the common
area walking down towards Kohls it may appear you
can't get to them, you can.
Now as to when renovations will be completed, it should
be sometime in 2015 and that all depends on the weather
reporting in North Spokane John Hendricks KXLY 4 news.
