It seems like we may never get a Costco in the Capital Region. The plans have been submitted and construction was supposed to begin but there are a lot of residents and a non-profit that have raised concerns. Just recently there was another meeting, this time in front of an appeals panel.
There is a specialty store inside Crossgates Mall that has only been open for a little over a year and will close toward the end of this month. It is a concept store one of only two in New York state and one of thirty in the country. The Amazon 4-Star store will close on March 19th.
