Foot traffic at the Sangertown Square Mall isn’t what it used to be, and it’s having an impact on the eateries. WKTV wasn’t able to talk to a representative from Subway, Antie Anne’s, China Express, or Roll Roll Ice Cream, but did speak with Nick Crocilla, the General Manager of Sicilian Delight about how their business is doing.
"We have curbside pick-up. We offer delivery through multiple services: Grub Hub, Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc., and we’re doing well…all things considering."
Just down the hall Arcade/Restaurant Pinz is running well below 50% of their normal values, and CEO David Breen says getting the arcade back open is essential to getting his business back on track.
"Although numbers are way down, with the assistance of Pyramid Management Group we should be here for the long haul. I don’t see any reason why we would be closing."
Breen also relies on later business hours. Something the Mall just isn’t ready to offer at this time. The owner of Green N Wave didn’t want to go on camera, but feels the loss of stores like JC Penney and Macy’s is crippling. He’s planning on holding out as long as he can, by keeping the same attitude as Nick Crocilla.
"We’re just making adjustments. As the Country adjusts, we adjust with it, so we’re not going anywhere. We’re doing just fine."
Sangertown Square continues to follow CDC guidelines for the safety of all guests, so masks and social distancing are required even if you’re stopping in for a bite to eat.
