The Newburgh Mall has never had the same caliber of stores as nearby malls in Poughkeepsiem, Middletown of West Nyack. Most shoppers simply traveled to shop at Banana Republic, Ann Taylor and the Gap (well, Newburgh did used to have a Gap, but not any longer).
The Children's Place is the newest addition to the Newburgh Mall and it is a welcome one. Not quite as big as some of their other locations, this store still has something this area has needed -- higher end children's clothing for special occasions at a reasonable price.
Hopefully, the addition of this store means a higher caliber of store is coming to Newburgh. I just bought adorable overalls and a top for $25 for my nephew, not bad considering that these are clothes that can be handed down to another kid.
