NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – Sangertown Square officially reopened Friday after shutting down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that malls could open if the air filtration systems met state standards.

After the state gave the OK, Pyramid Management Group announced that its malls, including Sangertown and Destiny USA, would open July 10.

Sangertown is now open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays, although not all stores inside the mall are prepared to open just yet.

David Etsen, owner of Rainbow Zen said one of the reasons some of the other stores could not open was, employees could not be brought back in time.

Despite some of the stores being closed, shoppers were thrilled to be back into the mall.

"It feels amazing and being able to walk around. Seeing things that obviously I haven't gotten to in a long time. It feels good," said Donald Bailey.

Stores open at this time include:

  • American Eagle Outfitters
  • Boscov’s
  • Cooperstown Connection
  • Dick’s
  • DSW
  • Game Craze
  • Hannoush Jewelers
  • HomeGoods
  • i-Candies
  • JCPenney
  • Jimmy Jazz
  • Kay Jewelers (curbside pickup only)
  • Macy’s
  • Pandora
  • Rainbow Zen
  • Scentsations (curbside pickup)
  • Sicilian Delight
  • The Children’s Place
  • The Smoothie Bar
  • Target

The following stores will be opening later this month:

  • Bath & Body Works, July 24
  • Champs, July 11
  • Claire’s, July 15
  • Famous Footwear, July 13
  • Foot Locker, July 11
  • Francesca’s, July 11
  • FYE, July 12

New health and safety guidelines have also been implemented for mall visitors and employees, including:

  • Everyone must wear masks
  • Social distancing
  • Enhanced air filtration
  • Curbside pickup options
  • Enhanced cleaning procedures on all surfaces, restrooms and seating areas
  • Staff will use new electrostatic sprayers to disinfect all areas
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been installed throughout the mall
  • Daily health screenings for employees

Nicholas Crocilla, manager at Sicilian Delight, says he and his staff are excited to see people at the mall after nearly four months.

“It feels so good to be back, we’re super excited to be able to serve everybody again. We’ve been waiting for this since March 17, so, very happy,” said Crocilla.
