Revitalized Yonkers Mall Ready For Black Friday Shoppers

YONKERS, NY (WCBS 880) – The Cross County Shopping Center opened in 1954.

WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi reports

So many from the area spent their younger years walking around this open-air mall that once had a Woolworth’s and a Stern’s.

Today, you would never recognize it. It’s modern, and maybe even a little exotic.

“We’re trying to keep our regular customers happy and just kind of re-engage people who haven’t been here in a long time,” the mall’s Liz Pollack told WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi.

Pollack says they’ve spent about $250 million revitalizing the center, and they now have stores like Armani Exchange and Guess.

“[They are] what we call aspirational luxury retailers,” said Pollack “So that we can re-engage the central Westchester customer.”

The Cross County Shopping Center is located at 8000 Mall Walk, Yonkers, NY 10704.

    I also remeber William Tell Hardware. There was a basement ilevel n addition to the main floot. It had everything; electrical, plumbing, floor coverings, etc. Now if you need these things you have to go to Home Depot.

    There was also deli called Wilskers I used to love to go there with my mom in the 70’s. And who could forget Party Bazaar I used to get all my Hello Kitty stuff there.

    It was Gimbels, not Sterns, back when there were 2 Woolworth stores in Cross County Shopping Center.

      There was a Sterns there until about 15 years ago when it became Macy’s.
