A new sub shop in Fall River has begun construction.

Back in October, we wrote an article about the fact that we are getting a Jersey Mike's sandwich shop right in Fall River. According to the Fall River Development News Facebook Page, Jersey Mike's is being built in the recently opened Southcoast Marketplace. The restaurant is estimated to be around 2,000 square feet and is set to be on the west side of the building, neighboring the Verizon Store.

By the time April rolls in, we should expect the new Jersey Mike's location to be open. The last time we've seen a Jersey Mike's open this close to the station was several years back on Rhode Island Avenue in Fall River. Along with this location, there is about 70 other locations in development across the United States.

In case you missed it, Jersey Mike's is a famous submarine sandwich chain that has been around since the mid-1950's and has been specializing in their famous subs and breakfast sandwiches ever since. Their sandwiches are always fresh, slicing the meats and veggies as they make your sandwich.

The new sub shop will be a great way to diversify lunch-time decisions for anyone who's short on time.
