Welcoming New Businesses
We look to welcome a new business to the Riverside Village Plaza in New Martinsville in the near future. A sign posted at the plaza announces a Burkes Outlet will be coming soon. It’s good to see the anchor location at the shopping center filled rather quickly than sit empty. Burkes Outlet will be in the same location which formerly housed a Peebles store and will give area consumers another option for clothing and accessories.
Regarding the plaza, we also noticed new mulch has been placed around the sign near the entrance. Another welcome sign, as a little landscaping can go a long way on appearance. Hopefully there are plans to address the parking lot surface in the near future as well. The potholes are numerous and the lot needs some attention. We encourage the plaza owner to look at improving the parking lot area which in turn should attract even more shoppers.
