BERNARDSVILLE, NJ - Bernardsville Centre held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday to celebrate the completion of their expansion project. The project included a total face-lift -- the $6M overhaul also included the addition of approximately 16,500 square feet of retail space. The 90,000 square foot shopping center is home to 29 businesses with 425 parking spots.
Bernardsville Mayor Mary Jane Canose and Senator Tony Bucco joined Brenda and Tom Curnin, Managing Partners of Bernardsville Centre LLC, in cutting the ceremonial ribbon. Also in attendance were Bernardsville Chamber President William Fischer and fellow property owner Joe Rossi, as well as several shop owners and business representatives.
"I want to welcome everyone this morning and thank you all for coming," said Brenda Curnin. She said the project started well over a decade ago. Because of the recession and other issues, the project was scaled back from its original plans.
What is important, the shopping center was bustling Saturday morning. -- Anchored by Kings, Gary's Wine & Marketplace, Starbucks and Sherwin Williams -- the center is also a regular destination spot with its diverse selection of eateries, salons, and fitness studios.
"This is a great accomplishment for not only the Bernardsville Centre, but for our great town of Bernardsville," said William Fischer, Bernardsville Chamber president. "We are excited for what the newly faced Centre will bring to the Bernardsville community in 2020."
