Holyoke Mall Getting a Fresh New Look
HOLYOKE, Mass (WGGB) — The Holyoke Mall is undergoing a massive renovation project.
The multi-million dollar phase of enhancements began in July. It’s an effort to keep up with the times and make the mall more contemporary.
“The mall turned 35 this year. The floor tile was original. It was time that things needed to be replaced. We needed a more modern and fresh look…and that’s what we’re getting,” said Lisa Wray, Marketing Manager of Holyoke Mall.
Construction has already begun to give the mall a new look.
“There’s new floor tile that is being replaced throughout the entire shopping center on all levels. The main elevator will be re-phased, we’ll have new directional signs, new guest services area, all of the oak woodwork will be refinished,” said Wray.
Holyoke Mall is the largest shopping destination in Western New England. More than 18 million people visit every year.
“Our shoppers expect amenities, they expect a great shopping experience and that’s what we’re hoping to give them,” said Wray.
All of the work that’s being done will take place overnight. It’s expected to be completed by the end of October.
