MURRAY, Utah -- A big reconstruction project is now underway at Fashion Place Mall in Murray.

Demolition started Wednesday on the former Sears building, which has been vacant for almost a year. A new Dillard's will be built in the space after demolition is complete.

The new store is going to be about 200,000 square feet, which is about 20,000 square feet larger than the old Dillard's.

Plans have not been finalized for what will replace the old Dillard's at Fashion Place. The current Dillard's will remain open until construction on the new building is complete in spring 2015.
