Colonie Center Anchor Store Closes
It's understandable why the big anchor stores are struggling. They sited online shopping and big department store-fronts as an enormous expense. Whole Foods has taken up a chunk of the real estate of the Sears floor plan. They are hoping to sell off most of the remaining square footage to higher end retailers like Williams Sonoma and Pottery Barn like they have done with other Sears spaces.
I just think it's already weird to see that one of the major anchor stores is just a big empty space. Hopefully they can find other retailers to make that mall look whole again.
