New owner has big ideas for Watermark Outlet

BESSMER, AL (WBRC) - A new owner wants to bring a fresh start for the watermark outlet center in Bessemer.
Bessemer businessman Anthony Underwood says he would love to add new retail stores, businesses, and even a museum and information center. He says there is open land on each side of the center and there is room to grow, but adds that the first goal is keeping the current stores and getting the word out to the community about the plans. "We are getting feedback from community and business community, they are looking for something unique, and we are the place for that," says Underwood. "We are poised to make things happen here."

The center will host an open house March 11th from five to eight.
It will be an attempt to attract new businesses.
