Crossgates Mall's newest eatery is ready to serve up sweet snacks to mall shoppers!

Just in time for the holiday shopping season ahead, the area's biggest mall is adding to its already long list of great food options. And as they said in the movie Mall Rats, since this eatery will not be a part of the standard food court area - it is an "autonomous unit for mid-mall snacking!


And just like in Mall Rats, that autonomous unit will be a cookie eatery. The new cookie eatery will be located near AT & T on the first level of the mall. This Friday they will not only be celebrating their grand opening but will have a lot of specials happening!
