Holyoke Mall Marks 35 Years

HOLYOKE — The Holyoke Mall, which changed the region’s retail landscape when it opened its doors in 1979, recently celebrated its 35th birthday with a host of events and announcements about future improvements. The mall staged a family friendly customer-appreciation event on July 26. Entertainment was provided by Forest park’s ‘Zoo of the Go,’ the Springfield Science Museum, the Valley Blue Sox, and others. There were also give-aways and a host of prizes. The mall also marked the occasion by announcing a series of enhancements, including new floor tile throughout the common area, restroom remodels, new directional signage, refinishing the oak paneling with a deeper color, and energy efficient lighting upgrades. Construction is projected to be completed this fall.
