The year 2017 was an exciting time at the Bradford Mall in McKean County. Big Lots!, a major tenant at the mall since 1996, identified the need for more space in order to offer a greater selection to customers. The company chose to occupy the vacant space available next to Dunham’s Sports, which opened in 2016. The 52,700 square feet formerly occupied by Kmart underwent a floor-to-ceiling renovation. The grand opening of the new store occurred in September 2017.
ALDI is currently constructing a new store across from Taco Bell at the intersection of Main Street and Foster Brook Boulevard. The unit footprint comprises about 20,000 square feet. An opening in spring 2018 is anticipated.
