Contractors are getting ready to take apart the Kenora Shoppers Mall.

Demolition work on Kenora's mall is expected to start soon. Bids have been accepted and work is expected to start in January.

City staff say the crews are expected to be finished by spring. The plan is to remove empty parts, including the old Zellers location.

This will allow shoppers to drive right up to the entrance of the store they want to visit. City staff added most of the bidders were from out of town, because local contractors were too busy.
