The Newburgh mall is losing another one of their anchor stores, marking the end of an era. The mall, however, is teasing that residents "are going to be excited to hear what’s in store" for what's coming next.

Even with the holiday season is full swing, many businesses, both local and national, are struggling to stay open. While the casino that moved into the Newburgh Mall this year originally drew mixed reactions, there's no debate that the newly-packed parking lots are a direct result of the move. Unfortunately, the boon didn't extend to one popular store.

Office Depot is the latest chain store to close their doors in Newburgh, but it certainly wasn't the only one in recent memory. In 2022, ShopRite was officially replaced by Ocean State Job Lot, and currently eyes are on Newburgh's Big Lots store, which announced an upcoming "temporary" closure and relocation.

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.
In 2003, a father-son business reality show hit the Discovery Channel. It was called American Chopper and it followed the custom motorcycle-building business of the Teutul family out of Newburgh, NY. Paul Sr. owned the shop with sons Paul Jr. and Mikey working in the business. There was a slew of cast and characters. The center of the show wasn't just the amazing custom motorcycles built for celebrities and others, it was the volatile relationship between Sr. and Jr. The show ran for 12 seasons before the two could no longer get along. It ended up in lawsuits and the two not talking for ten-plus years. In the past few years, the business moved to Florida. This left the 61,000-square-foot headquarters for sale and abandoned. Take a look at what remains of Orange County Choppers.
