Gymboree in Crossgates Mall and Crazy 8 in Colonie Center are both closing. As of right now there is no firm date as to when the stores will close their doors but it is going to happen pretty soon.
Right now, Gymboree is offering 30-50 percent off all inventory - all sales are final. Crazy 8 is also offering the same deal on what they still have in stock.
The reason the stores are closing? Gymboree is actually closing all of their stores due to bankruptcy. Since Crazy 8 is under the Gymboree umbrella, they're closing as well.
Personally, this makes me sad to an extent. My late Aunt use to shop for my girls at both stores and there are a lot of clothes in my house (that do not fit them anymore) in the closets and drawers from there. Come to think of it, I should clean out the drawers and closets in my house.
