Stores and Laudromats

There are many different stores throughout the Capital Region. Here are just a few of the essentials to get you started:

  • The major area supermarkets are Price Chopper and Hannaford. The most convenient store to campus is the Brunswick Price Chopper, which you can find by going east on Hoosick Street. If you don't have a car, you can take the 87 bus. Those of you who live in the Pawling Avenue area may find it convenient to go to the Wynantskill Hannaford at 40 Main Avenue, on the 80 bus route, but that is a smaller store with less selection. The Latham (on the 90 bus route) versions of both Price Chopper and Hannaford have good selections.
  • There are a number of Asian markets in the area. Some students like Lee's Market on Central Avenue in Albany. If you don't have a car, you can take the 90 bus to Colonie Center and then the 55 east on Central Avenue.
  • A farmer's market is held in Troy on Saturday mornings. It's outdoors by the river in the summer and indoors in the Atrium in the winter. For more information see http://www.troymarket.org/ During the summer, farmer's markets are also held 10:30am-1:30pm Tuesdays at at Monument Square and Wednesdays 3-6pm on Hill Street.
  • There are a number of laundromats in the area. There's one close to campus on 15th Street, between Hutton and Eagle.
  • For household and other items, you might want to visit BigLots in Troy Plaza, or the WalMart in Brunswick, which is past Price Chopper on Hoosick Street and on the 87 bus line. On the 90 bus line in Latham are the WalMart in Latham Farms, the Target on Wade Rd. Ext., and the KMart on Route 2.
  • There are countless restaurants in downtown Troy, on Hoosick Street, and throughout the region. See the Albany Times Union or Metroland for more information.
  • Downtown Troy has many shops, including include Aquilonia Comics, Market Block Books, Pfeil Hardware, CVS, Uncle Sams Natural Good Products, and an antiques district on River Street.
  • Coffee shops include Java++ at 15th Street and College Avenue, Mocha Blend near the Brunswick Price Chopper, and, in downtown Troy, the Daily Grind, Spill 'n' the Beans, Dunkin' Donuts, and the Flavour Cafe and Lounge.
  • The largest mall in the area is Crossgates. Smaller malls include Latham Circle and Colonie Center.
  • Major area thrift stores include the Goodwill store in the Price Chopper Plaza on Hoosick Street and the Salvation Army stores at Troy Plaza on Hoosick Street and on Route 2 in Latham.
