HOLYOKE MALL CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY
The Shopping Center Celebrates and Reflects on the Last 40 Years on July 5th
HOLYOKE, MA- Holyoke Mall is excited to celebrate their 40th anniversary on July 5, 2019. Since opening in 1979, Holyoke Mall has established itself as the largest shopping destination in Western Massachusetts and proudly offers 150+ dining, entertainment, and retail destinations.
Throughout the last 40 years, Pyramid has continued to adapt, evolve, and thrive in an ever-changing market due to their innovation, creativity, and ability to adopt consumer trends. In 1995, the shopping center expanded, adding an additional 500,000 square-feet, and welcomed big-box tenants such as Best Buy and Target. Traditionally located in free-standing or strip mall locations, the addition of these anchor tenants began an industry-wide trend.
Pyramid remains an industry leader and over the years Holyoke Mall has welcomed Massachusetts’ first Hobby Lobby, and the Xfinity Store, Toys R Us, and Christmas Tree Shops’ first in-mall locations.
The center continues to attract and expand its successful dining and entertainment options- most recently adding 110 Grill, Flight Fit N Fun, Round1 Bowling & Amusement and Sumo Japanese Steakhouse.
“We are happy to grow and change with our shoppers. Forty years is a testament of our success and dedication to providing the highest quality and in-demand dining, entertainment, and retail venues,” stated General Manager, Bill Rogalski. He continued, “We have more to come and are excited for our next 40 years.”
Other stores celebrating 40 years include American Eagle, Foot Locker, Gap, GNC, JCPenney, Kay Jewelers, Motherhood Maternity, and The Greek Place.
