Pyramid Welcomes Primark to Crossgates in Albany, NY

Crossgates Marks Primark’s First Store in the Capital Region and the Second Primark Location Across the Pyramid Portfolio  

Albany, NY – Pyramid Management Group, the largest privately-held shopping center developer in the northeast, is excited to announce the opening of the first Primark store in the Capital Region at Crossgates in Albany, New York. This marks the continuation of an exciting partnership with Primark, which began in June with the opening of Primark’s first Pyramid location at Walden Galleria in Buffalo, New York.

With over 35,000 sq. ft. of retail selling space, the new Primark store at Crossgates offers shoppers quality fashion essentials for the whole family, including on-trend fashion, beauty, and homewares at affordable prices. The international clothing retailer has quickly gained popularity across the U.S. and globally for its unbeatable combination of value, quality, and style.

“I am so proud and excited that Primark has once again chosen Pyramid and Crossgates for its continued expansion in the United States,” said Stephen J. Congel, CEO, Pyramid Management Group. “It’s a true testament to who Pyramid is as a developer — our creativity, our willingness to reinvest and reinvent our properties, and most importantly, our exceptional team who make all the difference in making store openings like this possible.”

“’Primania’ is spreading across the U.S., as shoppers discover our unbeatable combination of value, quality, and style,” said Kevin Tulip, President, Primark US. “The reception that we received from people in Buffalo and now in Albany is something we will remember at Primark for years to come. We are thrilled to continue our expansion in New York with Pyramid and introduce Albany to Primark’s unique, value-driven offering of fashion and essentials for the whole family.”

“Our success as a developer is driven by our ability to quickly adapt to changing consumer preferences,” Congel noted. “We are constantly staying ahead of the curve by adding new and exciting retailers like Primark, incorporating innovative amenities, and offering mixed-uses that provide unique experiences for our guests that go well beyond the traditional shopping experience.”
