It has been a busy month of news regarding stores at Crossgates Mall and some more changes are coming.

While Crossgates Mall has become a premier entertainment destination, it feels like the retail business has been building positive momentum well. In a world where online shopping has become so popular, people still love to get out and see and try out the goods they are buying.

Crossgates additions like the Amazon Store, Urban Outfitters, and the soon-to-be Primark department store location have been bucking the trend of the continued reduction of retail stores.

That said, one Crossgates Retail Outlet is getting ready to close its doors later this month.

Williams Sonoma, which is known for kitchen and some general home goods, will be closing for good on Sunday, January 23rd according to a Times Union story. If you are looking for some big savings and bargain items as they get ready to liquidate their inventory before closing, there are some great markdowns as high as 40 percent according to the TU story.

This closure is not really a surprise either. According to Forbes, Williams Sonoma is executing a plan to  "...reduce its physical footprint by 25% over the next five years." The good news is for the Crossgates Mall is they have been going in the opposite direction with retail outlets of late.
