Place Bathurst Mall stores, offices permitted to reopen after being shut down by WorkSafeNB

The Place Bathurst Mall says offices and businesses shut down due to safety concerns can reopen.

WorkSafeNB ordered all offices on the second floor, along with six stores, to shut down after a massive snowfall last week resulted in cracks forming in some walls.

The agency wanted to ensure there was no structural damage and that the building could withstand future snowfalls.

Manager Renelle Landry says an inspection by structural engineers found no structural damages.
