FREEPORT (WIFR) -- A new roof should be on the Lincoln Mall within the next two months and the building's owner is now eying new tennants.
Construction crews put in a temporary roof while that section of the mall is still blocked off. Part of it caved in a few weeks ago because of so much snow on the roof.
Mall manager Joan Welt says the hole has been patched up and that area still has heating and electricity. Welt says she's been talking with a few vendors in hopes of opening new stores in that section of the mall. Other business owners say they'd like to see a department store set up shop.
