The scaffolding that encloses the sidewalk is still up, but bit by bit, the temporary plywood sheathing has been coming down, giving passersby a peak into what many regard as the best hope for an economic rebound in downtown Red Bank.

We’re talking about the big new Urban Outfitters clothing and household goods store scheduled to open sometime next month at 2 Broad Street.

Company officials did not respond to a messages seeking verification that the store will open November 19.

But the company’s website has some promising news for jobseekers in the retail sector.

The Philadelphia-based company is planning a job fair for all sales positions next Wednesday, October 28, at the Oyster Point Hotel.

Managers must be expecting quite a crowd. The event is scheduled to run for 10 hours, from 10a to 8p.

Will we see some variation on what happened this summer in northern Indiana, when some 500 hopefuls applied for the one $13-an-hour job being filled at a truck-driving school?

The fair is open to everyone 18 years and older, and no appointment is necessary.
