Thousands of people were at Meadowbrook mall Saturday to celebrate the mall's finished renovations.
After seven months of construction, the mall is ready to show off it's finished changes. There's a lot of new features. Carpet lines the hallways.
The entire building was power washed. There's even a new 20 foot tall Santa to ring in the holidays. More skylights have been added. There's even a nursery nook for mothers to take a break while shopping.
Mall spokesperson Joe Bell said, "It's been a long time since this mall was built and it was time to bring it into the 21st century. Our construction crews, working into the wee hours of the overnight, managed to get this mall in a position where it looks and feels much more modern."
Disney stars, like Caroline Sunshine and Nathan Kress, were there to sign autographs. There were children's activities, along with free food and prize giveaways.
Shoppers said they're happy with the new changes. They said it looks like a totally new mall.
Monongalia County resident Rhonda Bonnett said, "I think it is nice. It's very beautiful. I have a 12 year old and she is so excited to see Caroline Sunshine and Nathan Kress.'
If you missed it, the festivities will continue Sunday.
