YONKERS, NY — January 13, 2016 — Cross County Shopping Center took great pride in announcing they will become home to Westchester County’s first Shake Shack location in late 2016. The popular NYC-based restaurant will open in a new retail space, north of AX Armani Exchange, facing the Cross County Parkway.
“The opening of Shake Shack comes as the culmination of a series of several new fashion retailers and eateries to open at the shopping center within the last year,” said Claude Chandonnet, president & CEO of Marx Realty and executive vice president of Brooks Shopping Centers, LLC, the center’s owner.

We look forward to offering neighboring communities an inspiring new food and shopping experience.”
