Big news for the former Irondequoit Mall. Angelo Ingrassia who formerly owned Irondequoit Dodge purchased the mall and its adjoining parcels for $100,000. Ingrassia is responsible for developing and revitalizing much of E. Ridge Road including LA Fitness and Depot Plaza. An answer to the long debate of the Mall’s future may be on the horizon.
Practically every Irondequoit resident has hopes for the now-vacant building. For those residents who were part of the Irondequoit Mall’s opening and hey day, it would be wonderful to see something equally as exciting for Irondequoit.
There have been many nostalgic images floating around the internet of the early days of the Irondequoit Mall.
Here are some pictures from the Grand Opening brochure from March of 1990. Do you remember the mall’s slogan?
It’s New! It’s You! It’s Exciting!
The following link provides a gallery of pictures of the current condition of the mall. The photos were taken last month.
