HEADING UPSTATE: Michael Kors has signed a lease for a new store at Crossgates Mall in Albany, N.Y., to open next spring, according to sources. Kors is the second big company to head to Crossgates after Lord & Taylor said last week it would open a 100,000-square-foot store next fall. Expected for the Christmas shopping season will be a pop-up Crate & Barrel one of only four that will run nationwide, said mall general manager Joseph Castaldo. His hope is that if all goes well Crate & Barrel will remain at Crossgates.
