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.
