*UPDATE* Crossgates Mall and Indoor Shopping Centers to Close [PICS]
The governor has issued that parts of various indoor businesses across the state close due to the coronavirus. Governor Cuomo announced that amusement parks, shopping malls, and bowling alleys will temporarily close. This will be effective Thursday at 8 pm. My girlfriend, Jenn, went to Crossgates the other morning and found some signs on different stores inside the mall. It appears that the Vans store, Hollister, and Oakley are all closed.
According to News 10 ABC, starting tomorrow (Wednesday, March 18th) Crossgates and Aviation Mall will have new operating hours. This is to ensure crowds will not gather at malls during the coronavirus outbreak.
Pyramid Management Group of New York State will set new hours at all of their malls. The new hours will be Monday through Saturday 11 am through 7 pm and Sunday 11 am through 5 pm until further notice.
The changes affect Aviation Mall in Queensbury and Crossgates Mall in Albany. Pyramid Management Group also says they are doing everything to make sure the malls are clean and have signage to remind shoppers to practice good hygiene.
