Nashville unemployment rates are sure to be helped by several new businesses coming to town.
We recently heard of a new business coming to Nashville. One that we didn’t have before, not even anything like it.
It’s a water and snow park. Snow, you say? Here? In Nashville and Middle Tennessee? For sure! It’s the ‘Dolly-Opry-Wood’ (that is the name we invented for it here in this column!)
The great thing about this new business is that it is bringing 450 plus new jobs to town with it. Plus there will be many jobs in the construction industry which are filled by the building of this new Nashville entertainment park, which is being done by a new partnership between Grand Ole opry star, Miss Dolly Parton, and the Gaylord Entertainment/Gaylord Hotels company. This will brighten the Nashville unemployment scene, with 450 plus job openings in town!
The entertainment park will be located across Briley Parkway from the Opry Mills Mall, which has a planned re-opening of March 29, 2012.
From WKRN TV, Channel 2 in Nashville, comes this news:
60-plus stores to return, open at Opry Mills
“Opry Mills Mall is on schedule to fully reopen March 29, nearly two years after floodwaters inundated Nashville and the sprawling shopping complex..”
We are friends on Facebook with Opry Mills Mall and here are some recent postings showing their excitement about the new business opportunities and of the returning stores to the once-flooded Mall:
Have you heard our latest news – 60 more new/returning stores & restaurants announced today! Here’s the list of stores/restaurants announced as of 1/27/2012: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150510234441129
Our latest news! New/Returning Stores & Restaurants announced as of 1/27/2012
New/Returning Stores and Restaurants Announced as of 1/27/2012 …
By: Opry Mills
It’s here! It’s here! FINALLY! We have waited a l o n g time to say … WE ARE 60 DAYS FROM OPENING!!! We can not wait to welcome back all ya’ll! March 29, 2012!
We do not see a projected number of potential returning employees or of the new employees which will be hired at the re-opening stores of the Opry Mills Mall, but with 60 plus stores coming in or coming back, there will certainly be a lot of jobs available for currently unemployed Nashville residents.
We are hoping many of our friends and associates who have been on the Nashville unemployment rolls for some time will once again become employed through the Opry Mills Mall stores re-opening.
