Eight months of work are paying off today for the new Owner – Operator of the Magnetic Hill Wharf Village, as she celebrates their Grand Opening.
Jenna Cann says they had quite a lot of renovation work to do before getting started, and while it will remain familiar to the public, every building will be a little bit different.
“We’ve updated the menu, we’ve added a few different stores, with a kid’s store, an old school general store, an artisan store, some clothing and gift stores, and then our ice cream and fudge, and actually also a cafe, so we’re very, very excited,” says Cann.
Cann says as proud Atlantic Canadians, they wanted to showcase what we are capable of creating here on the East Coast, adding each building has “a touch of Atlantic Canada in it.’
She says every part, from the restaurant, and cafe, to the various stores will include some regional products.
The village, which had been designed to look like a traditional Maritime fishing village closed down last April after approximately 30 years, when the City of Moncton did not renew their lease agreement with owner John Murphy.
The facility had fallen into disrepair over the years, and remained closed for all of last summer.
