A sign outside the entrance of Consumer Square in New Hartford says "Coming Soon!" referencing the retailer Five Below. But, isn't there already a location in Consumer Square?
Yes, there is. Five Below opened in Consumer Square back in 2017 What exactly is happening?
Nothing major. It looks like the store wants to expand and have more space for products, so they're moving next to Old Navy in Consumer Square. They will be vacating their current space and will be moving into the former Dress Barn location, according to store associates.
They're planning to be fully moved into their new storefront to have a grand opening celebration by August 26. They did say it could be sooner or later than that day, however.
Five Below is open in Consumer Square Monday through Saturday from 10 to 8PM and Sunday from 10 to 7PM.
REAL TALK: Is Chick-Fil-A Opening in Washington Mills?
Gotta love it when a rumor hits the streets and people start talking. For years, members of the community have wanted a Chick-fil-A in the Utica/Rome, and there's been word in the past that it would happen.
The news has hit the streets again, but is it true this time? Is Chick-fil-A coming to Washington Mills?
That's exactly what we asked the Town of New Hartford Zoning Department. "We heard that Chick-fil-A was opening where the former police department is on Kellogg Road in Washington Mills. Can you confirm or deny the rumor?"
There will be chicken. That's all we're gonna say about that one.

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.
