Kingsbridge mall to bring hundreds of new jobs to the Bronx
The new River Plaza shopping mall will bring hundreds of jobs to the Bronx. Target alone is hiring approximately 600 permanent employees.
Residents are eagerly anticipating the opening of the new mall on 225th Street and Broadway. They say it will bring more money into the neighborhood and will upgrade the stores around the area. The mall will also include big names such as Applebees, and Marshall's.
However, while most people are excited about the opening of the new plaza, some local shop owners worried about the big name competition.
The grand opening for some of the stores will be towards the end of July.
