You may have noticed that the Poughkeepsie Plaza is currently under redevelopment, but stores remain open despite half the plaza being under construction.

While the plaza may look like construction has taken over, the stores remain open for business.

While stores have kept their doors open in the plaza, some have changed locations due to the construction. Sugar and Spice Cafe, The UPS Store and Sew & Vac have moved to the South end of the plaza near Harmon.

While Tea Talk and De’s Jewelers have moved to exterior locations in the middle of the plaza, next to the plaza’s new entrance. Since construction, Marino’s Barbershop has also relocated and is now inside the plaza next to JoAnn’s Fabrics. The Pastry Garden remains open for business in their original location.

Kimberly Barela-Lasher, Plaza Manager said:

We are proud to say that locally owned tenants like De’S Jewelers, The Pastry Garden, Marino’s Barbershop, Just A Buck, Nail Pro, and Sugar & Spice Café to name a few, still call the Poughkeepsie Plaza home after for more than 15 years. We would like people to remember that the Poughkeepsie Plaza has always been and will continue to be a unique shopping center with a mix of national stores and specialty shops. We also still have a portion of the plaza that is enclosed to hold informational and children’s events throughout the year

In addition to these changes, the Poughkeepsie Plaza also plans to announce the additional of a new store to the plaza within the next few months.
