Yorktown mall getting major makeover
The Jefferson Valley Mall in Yorktown is getting a major makeover.
On Friday, workers began gutting the mall's movie theater as the first step of a three-phase, multimillion-dollar plan.
The mall will also be getting new entrances, interior renovations, stores and a brand-new food court.
Town officials say the upgrades will hopefully entice people to shop locally, instead of traveling to White Plains or Poughkeepsie.
The renovation is expected to be completed in 2017.
