The home arena of the Boston Bruins and the Boston Celtics is getting a $70 million makeover.    

TD Garden owner Delaware North Companies Inc. announced Monday that the two-year-project includes the expansion and relocation of the shop that sells Bruins and Celtics memorabilia from the North Station concourse to the second-floor turnstile area in an effort to maximize fan accessibility.      

The arena's loge and balcony concourses will receive a complete floor-to-ceiling redesign that will include an increased variety of concessions options.      

The Legends Club restaurant on level three will also receive a makeover.     

Plans also call for upgraded technology infrastructure to support fans' digital expectations.      

Charlie Jacobs, principal owner of Delaware North and the Bruins, says he wants to make sure the nearly 20-year-old arena “sets the industry standard.''
