Mall construction work is on schedule

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

Big Lots will be located in a roughly 32,000 square-foot space. A firm opening date has not been provided for this store.

The retail store that has not yet been named will occupy a 22,000 square-foot space.

In late November, a special groundbreaking ceremony was held at the mall to celebrate the three new stores, as well as other improvements planned at the site.

On hand for the proceedings were city officials, along with representatives of The Sansone Group and Pine Tree Commercial Realty, LLC — the mall's owners.

Mt. Vernon Mayor Mary Jane Chesley said Thursday Sansone is a quality company that is “ready, willing and able” to invest in Mt. Vernon.

It is good to have a partnership with this quality company,” Chesley said. “They have faith in the future of the city and the potential of the retail market.”

Chesley also pointed out that the new retail stores will be a great benefit to the city in terms of attracting more people and increasing tax dollars.

It brings more of a marketability for the community,” Chesley said. “The potential is there for the improvement of the quality of the community.”
