I ran across this 30 year old video from the debut of the Crossgates Mall. This video was shot in anticipation of the grand opening and to get investors interested in the new mall.

It's amazing to see the mall in its beginning stages. I was a toddler when the mall was lanched. There are a couple of stores, that I wasn't aware were ever in the Crossgates Mall. There were also several stores that are still there to this day.

What are some of the stores that you remember from the old days of Crossgates Mall ? I noticed there was a Burger King in the mall, what happened to make that close ? I rememember Caldors but what ever happened to that chain because they had one where I grew up also ? Take a walk down memory lane with The Crossgates Mall Throwback
