Crossgates Mall is really doing its best to become more than just a shopping center but more of a place for full entertainment. They’ll now have a new space to work with since one of their longer-standing restaurants has announced they closed today.
The Melting Pot sent out an email to their Valued Club Fondue Members today announcing that as of today, The Melting Pot of Albany has closed for business indefinitely. According to them, it “was a business decision based on the economics associated with this franchise location.”
If you still have gift cards or want to fulfill your Melting Pot void, you can still visit the White Plains, NY, Westwood, NJ, or Whippany, NJ locations. I’d been there a few times, I never heard that they were having any problems and this closure seems rather abrupt. As they said in their Facebook post (below), they have no plans to reopen the Albany location but aren’t ruling out potentially opening another Capital Region location in the future.
