Mall undergoing renovations to welcome new retail and food selections to add to offerings for visitors. It is always clean, has seating areas to rest and have conversations plus child friendly activities to explore. Especially appreciate the post office with 8PM closing and Sunday hours.

We went in, not knowing what to expect but had a pleasant shopping experience. There were a few great shops not local to us so we enjoyed the new places. All in all, a nice stop. It was quiet.

Good mall with nice dining options. I personally didn't like the shopping options there. There are some good place to eat around the Colonie center like Cheese Cake Factory and PF Changs.

Colonie Center has been locally known as the more upscale of the large malls over the past 10 years or so. Unfortunately even with that status, there are some "filler" store fronts appearing inside. I still feel the mall is on the upscale side of the spectrum and I enjoy visiting Whole Foods, Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang's and Macy's. ,The... More

If you want a less crowded mall then this the one for you. Easier to get around because it's much smaller than crossgates. Large macys, sears, ll bean, boscovs, Christmas tree shop, Barnes & noble are the main big stores. Food court isn't anything special. Movie cinemas are newer and nice. Whole foods is a new store that opened a... More

Albany takes its malls seriously. On a rainy Saturday these places are packed. Come the snow season - fugetaboutit... While not as pleasurable as the larger and more easily assessable Crossgates Mall a decent shopping experience can be had here - once you get in. The traffic is busy - very busy - in the surrounding area. Parking on rainy... More

The Colonie Center Mall has a good mix of stores...we particularly like the artisans' store, Boscov's, LL Bean, Sears, and Barnes and Noble. And they have really good booths and one of the best watch shops in the area, along with movies and eateries!

My wife has been a fan of Christmas Tree Shops from long before they arrived in the Capital District. On a return visit to Albany, we decided to visit Colonie Center for a visit to Christmas Tree and a chance to walk the corridors of the mall...mall-walking is popular in FL. We were impressed with the mall update...a new multi-screen... More

I stop there at least once a week. The parking is easy. It isn't packed like Crossgates Mall. Various stores that I like to frequent. I haven't been to the movies there but I like the stores.
