Tom Jones Corporation and the Bank of Nova Scotia, are proud to announce the completion of the newly constructed Bank of Nova Scotia building, in the Arthur Street Marketplace Shopping Centre.The project, which began in October of 2018 and was completed in August, 2019, and has quickly brought increased business and activity to the already busy centre. Parkdale Subdivision and neighbouring residence and businesses, now have the added convenience of another banking service, almost at their doorstep.  The new building comes on the heels of the Bank of Nova Scotia’s decision to move their Victoriaville operation to the Arthur Street Marketplace. The site offers the convenience of plenty of free parking, 24/hour ATM drive-through, along with the ‘one-lot-shopping’, concept in mind, for families and working people, on the go.  The marketplace site itself, is home to other main stream venues, such as Metro Grocery, Wal-Mart, LCBO, Dollarama, Canadian Tire, just next door and a variety of other little shops, such as lottery outlets, women’s fashion and sport paraphernalia.
