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.

The shopping experience was excellent. We ate in the food court, saw a movie and finished our day with some shopping. I especially love Charming Charlie. The parking on the Wolf Rd. side was horrendous, but if you go around back where Christmas Tree Shop and Boscov's are, you'll have little trouble.

I would go to colonie center over crossgates, very nice stores, clean and not a lot of crowds, which is something that I like very much with the exception of holidays. Love most of the stores in colonie center, especially Christmas Tree shop and it is very close to home which is another plus.
