Construction is now underway for a Buffalo Wild Wings set to open in the New Bern Mall.
The construction began three weeks ago, according to the owner of a construction company on site. James Arthur of James Arthur Construction said his company is doing most of the work.
The project includes remodeling the inside of the building and also adding a larger sign to the mall’s entrance. Arthur said construction is expected to be complete sometime in November.
“I think it will be good for business,” Gina Sexton, a New Bern resident, said of the restaurant. “It's done a lot for Morehead City and that's what New Bern needs right now.”
The restaurant will bring 55 part-time and 20 full-time jobs to the New Bern area.
An official opening date has not been announced.
