In 2003, the entire mall was torn down, except for Bon-Ton, the newly constructed freestanding Applebee's, the P&C Supermarket (now Tops), the attached Eckerd (now Rite Aid), and the vacant Kmart building, which was sold to the West Genesee School District for extra classroom space while the adjacent school was renovated, and ultimately became the school's bus garage. A new plaza, called Camillus Commons, was constructed on the site of the old mall. Lowe's opened in January 2006, and a Wal-Mart Supercenter moved from Fairmount Fair in June 2006. A Bank of America branch, Sylvan Learning Center and Verizon Wireless store were built on to the back of the Bon-Ton building.

Famous quotes containing the word commons:
“I am really sorry to see my countrymen trouble themselves about politics. If men were wise, the most arbitrary princes could not hurt them. If they are not wise, the freest government is compelled to be a tyranny. Princes appear to me to be fools. Houses of Commons & Houses of Lords appear to me to be fools; they seem to me to be something else besides human life.”
—William Blake (17571827)
