As of last week, The Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery in Syracuse has officially closed its doors permanently. It opened up on Erie Boulevard back in 2014.
Along with Burlington Coat Factory, the Erie Canal Centre shopping plaza in DeWitt is set to add a Michaels location. According to Brixmor Property Group, which owns and operates the plaza, Dicks Sporting Goods will be joined by Burlington at the end of 2017 and Michaels in early 2018.
Michaels has three current locations in the Syracuse area, with the one on Erie Blvd. being located less than 2 miles from the proposed location. However, it is likely that the current Erie Blvd. location would close and move into the Erie Canal Centre shopping plaza.

It was announced Tuesday that Payless ShoeSource has filed for bankruptcy and will be closing nearly 400 poorly performing stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. This is another result of the difficulty for retail chains to survive in the age online shopping and Amazon.
“This is a difficult, but necessary, decision driven by the continued challenges of the retail environment, which will only intensify,” Payless CEO W. Paul Jones said in a statement.
The Payless stores closing in the Syracuse area include the following:
- Shoppingtown Mall in DeWitt
