Where I-95, Route 59 and Route 303 all meet is the 4-story, 200 merchant mall known as Palisades Center. Families from Westchester, Bergen, Rockland and Orange counties gather here to shop at dozen of stores, grab a bite at one of our 27 eateries and get their adrenaline pumping at the world’s tallest indoor ropes course or at go-kart race course, just to name a few of the entertainment venues. Palisades Center is an incredibly active and bustling destination for those close and far (we’re the #1 tourist attraction in Rockland county!). How do we keep it not just running, but running well?
It all comes down to the dedicated employees that run each store, eatery and venue. Because of their professionalism, talent and enthusiasm, Palisades Center is able to be the best version of itself it can be. With Labor Day just next week, we wanted to take a moment to profile five employees from various destinations within Palisades Center. Each day we will release the profile of a different employee on our Facebook and Instagram.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our employees, new and old, for all of their hard work. It does not go unnoticed.
