Mall owners urging state to reconsider reopening enclosed stores

NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – Pyramid Management Group, the owner of Sangertown Square, is urging the state to reconsider opening malls as part of Phase 2.

As it stands, stores with outside entrances can open, but not stores enclosed in the mall. Macy’s, Boscov’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Target are the only stores currently open in Sangertown.

Pyramid released a statement regarding their disappointment with the decision, saying, in part:

"Our collective investment of time and money into safely and responsibly re-opening our centers was considerable. What's more, our retailers and their employees were anticipating the scheduled Phase Two re-opening on Friday as a way to get back to work and begin supporting their families and our local economies. Re-opening is key to the survival of these retailers, many of which are locally owned and are now in grave danger of never being able to open their doors."

The company says the mall is prepared to welcome customers, and believes the large, open spaces within the building will allow for proper social distancing.

Pyramid believes some of its tenants are at risk of losing their businesses, saying “reopening is key to the survival of these retailers, many of which are locally owned and are now in grave danger of never being able to open their doors.”

Mall retailers are expected to be included in subsequent reopening phases.
