New life for Venice shopping plaza

VENICE, Fla. (WWSB) - There is new life for a Venice shopping center.

After almost 10 years of sitting empty, the former K-Mart building off of U.S. 41 Bypass in the Jacaranda Plaza will reopen this week as Marshalls.

The Marshalls’ grand opening is set for this Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

Even though it struggled financially, K-Mart occupied most of the plaza for years until finally closing in 2009 with the loss of around 50 employees.

The new Marshalls store is expected employ around 60 people.
