The attention paid to the dying ShoppingTown Mall might overshadow the life exploding in shopping centers next to it.
The town considers Marshall’s Plaza and Erie Canal Centre “power plazas,” and additions are constantly being made to both.
The Marshall’s Plaza recently built a new building, where CoreLife Eatery just opened. Blaze Pizza and Jersey Mike’s Subs will open in the adjacent spaces next.
Another new building is also being considered at Marshall’s Plaza.
It’s growth similar to what’s happening right next door, at another power plaza – Erie Canal Centre on Erie Boulevard.
It’s where Dick’s Sporting Goods moved after bailing on ShoppingTown Mall, later joined by Michael’s and Burlington.
Next, Erie Canal Centre will be home to DeWitt’s first Starbucks, opening later this year.
