The old Lord and Taylor location is about to come back to life with a new department store.

It has been a while since an actual retail outlet has operated out of the old anchor store at Crossgates Mall. That will change later this year.

According to a Times Union story, Primark is planning 3 additional locations in the state of New York including one at Crossgates set to open in late 2022. This will be the first Upstate New York location for the retailer which specializes in value fashion and homewares. The new store will occupy the first floor of the old Lord and Taylor while the state run COVID vaccination site will keep operating on the second floor for the time being.

While it may feel like the mall has had more great entertainment destinations opening in recent years, Primark continues a trend of an uptick in new retail outlets. The mall recently added an Amazon store and an Urban Outfitters, and the additional of Primark will bring another big retail chain back in the fold. Maybe these retailers are sensing we are ready to be out of the house as much as humanly possible in the years ahead!
