GUILDERLAND — The region’s largest shopping mall said Wednesday it will begin increasing its operating hours amid continued progress against the COVID pandemic.
Beginning Friday, the mall will expand its Thursday-Saturday hours to 10-9. Monday-Wednesday will remain unchanged, 10-7. Sunday hours will be 11-6.
Beginning June 28, Monday-Saturday hours will expand to 10-9:30. Sunday hours will remain 11-6.
“Given the steady increases in traffic we are seeing at Crossgates, combined with increased vaccination rollout, the re-opening of movie theaters, pent-up customer demand for more venues to be open earlier and later in the day, we are excited to begin ramping back to regular operating hours in the coming days,” Crossgates marketing director Jen Smith said in a news release.
With the expanded hours comes the need for more employees. More than 30 businesses in the mall have over 60 full- and part-time job openings listed at shopcrossgates.com/employment.
