Westminster Mall revit. rests on new invest.

Abstract

"It has been a trying year for downtown Providence merchants. Roads that too long have been neglected are being repaired and a Westminster Mall is in the process of getting a new facelift. Dirt, dust, noise, hazardous walking and a general inconvenience have deterred potential shoppers from using downtown shops, and this is reflected in reduced sales."
