Pier 1 Imports once had over 500 stores across the US. This location in Clifton Park shut its doors for good in 2020 – the company filed for bankruptcy and all stores were eventually shut down.
However, the location is prime. Located right off Northway Exit 9, next to the very busy Route 146 and surrounded by all kinds of retail shops and restaurants.
After the current building is knocked down and removed, construction will begin on the Capital Region’s first free standing Chick-fil-A, which is scheduled to open in the spring of 2023. The owners are also working on opening another location in North Greenbush. They hope to have a simultaneous grand opening for both locations.
In the meantime, here’s what the inside of the empty store looked like after it closed. Thanks to the abandoned place man on YouTube for capturing the building before it was given the wrecking ball.demolition photo: Clifton Park Town Supervisor Phil Barrett via Facebook
