It's the moment so many in Oneida County and surrounding areas have been waiting for: a favorite national beauty retailer has announced their return to the area.

According to their website, Sephora will be opening inside Kohls in New Hartford.

If you walk inside the Kohls, you'll see that they are clearing space for the addition. The store will be approximately 2,500 square feet, according to Kohls store employees, and will feature all the things Sephora is known for: makeup, hair, skin care, fragrance products and more.

There's no word on an exact opening date, but online, it says they are slated to open this fall. You'll also be able to purchase their products online through this fall as well.

Sephora was formerly located inside JCPenney at Sangertown Square Mall, but that retailer closed their store this past September.

Take A Look Inside The Abandoned ShoppingTown Mall In Dewitt, NY

Onondaga County currently owns the ShoppingTown Mall located in Dewitt New York near the Syracuse area. As of today, the mall is abandoned. The future of the building will go to someone who has the best vision for it. Onondaga County has issued an official request for proposals (RFP) for ShoppingTown Mall. The property will be resold to the buyer with the best plan for revitalizing the vacant property.
Proposers will need to have a demonstrated history of producing "high quality projects," according to the statement. They will also need to produce financial information related to the project."
Jordan Harmon was able to tour the property and take plenty of photos recently with permission from Onondaga County:
The main purpose of this shoot was to document this historical structure before any alterations occur. I grew up with this mall, I can remember coming here as a kid. This was the place my family did our back to school shopping and the place where I’d blow my allowance at Fun Junction playing laser tag. To see it now is shocking to say the least. The former owner of the mall clearly made no effort to maintain it, let alone stop the hundreds of leaks in the roof.
