Two new stores will be taking up residence at Crossgates Mall – one next month, and one next year. The store coming in December will be perfect for buying holiday gifts!
ThinkGeek, an online retailer of geek-inspired toys and gadgets, will be coming to Crossgates next month.
Although ThinkGeek used to be online-only, the retailer has been opening physical stores over the last year, with the closest to Albany being in Palisades Center Mall in West Nyack in Rockland County; they’re also opening stores in Buffalo and in Suffolk County this month.
The Crossgates store is going to focus on collectibles. We can likely expect toys and trinkets from pop culture brands like Star Wars, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Nintendo, Marvel, DC Comics, Doctor Who, and more.
Instead of just shopping for holiday presents online this year, consider heading to Crossgates when ThinkGeek opens. If you have someone in your life who’s difficult to buy for, or especially if you’re shopping for someone with a specific geeky interest or passion, you can almost certainly find a great and unique gift here!
Zara is known for trendy clothing and accessories at affordable prices, and this store is coming to Crossgates sometime in 2017; the official date has not yet been released.
Based out of Spain, Zara is one of the largest international fashion companies. The retailer’s current Northeast locations include New York City, Boston, Providence, and New Jersey.
