Coyote Moon Salmon Run Mall location closes permanently

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) -Salmon Run Mall in Watertown is open, but another one of the stores will keep it’s doors shut.

Coyote Moon Vineyards confirms it has permanently closed it’s mall location, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as the cause for the closure.

The wine shop has been in business for 9 years at the Salmon Run Mall, starting as a small Kiosk and later growing into a full store.

The long-time store manager this was a tough decision to make.

“Our friends over at Pyramid Management Group, and the people at the Salmon Run Mall, they’ve been so good to us during this whole COVID shutdown, but as a small business with the shopping center having been closed 113 days, it’s really hard for us to bounce back from that,” said Lori Randazzo of Coyote Moon Vineyards.

Randazzo says she was able to keep her full staff employed at the two Coyote Moon locations in Clayton.

You can still purchase Coyote Moon wine there, at liquor stores, and at the weekly farmers market in Watertown.

We had hoped to never say this, but because of COVID-19, we've permanently closed our Mall Store in Watertown. Thank...
