WATERTOWN — A restaurant, former downtown jeans store, bubble tea shop and a virtual reality store are new businesses that will be coming to the Salmon Run Mall in the coming weeks and months.
Karla Noftsier, the mall’s marketing director, announced the eight new businesses in an email.
“We’re excited to have some new stores in the mix as we take off in 2022,” she said.
With the eight new businesses, the mall will fill up an unspecified space occupied by former retail shops. She could not say how much unoccupied space remains.
In what’s considered an important addition, Kiss My Axe, a casual bar serving specialty pizzas, hot subs and other items, will open in the former Skewed Brewing, which closed at the beginning of the pandemic. The new restaurant is scheduled to open in June.
Owner Najib Ismail already runs Zero Latency and The Spinning Grill Mediterranean restaurant in the mall. He could not be reached for comment.
Ms. Noftsier confirmed that Loft 315, a denim jeans store that opened in downtown Watertown in 2019, will be relocating on March 1, next to the Torrid store in the mall.
The downtown Franklin Street storefront is part of Jefferson Community College’s education center project and needs to find a new location as that construction is set to begin this spring.
The store closed soon after Christmas.
Merchant Marylois Queal, who couldn’t be reached for comment, has been hinting about the change on the store’s Facebook page for weeks.
