'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' in Yonkers

The celebrity sisters descended upon the Sears store at the Cross County Shopping Center for a meet and greet event with fans of their clothing line the Kardashian Kollection.

 

Fans lined up as early as in the in Yonkers and by 4 p.m., thousands of fans could be seen inside and outside of the store, trying to catch a glimpse of the celebrity sisters.

Lines stretched across the outside of the building and on the first floor, most sales transactions came to a halt as hundreds gathered whereever they could in the clothing aisles, armed with their cell phones, ready to get a snapshot of the Kardashians.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano was also on hand to give the girls a proclamation and thanked them for visiting Cross County and the city.

The kardashians and their fans just prove to me how little hope there is for the human species. I did not give the k in their name an upper case letter because they don't deserve one.

Hey josh, your punctuation is still atrocious! That should be a period between reading and always. Your name does not deserve an upper case letter either.

Wow. Looks like the critics are out in full force. Full moon perhaps? Citizens' poor taste didn't just start this year (or this century) so let's hope it doesn't start turning everyone's dispositions sour. I'm not a Kardashian follower & don't necessarily disagree that people should use their time more productively but will say a few things on a positive note: Good for Cross County for having the #1 Sears in the country! Obviously they will do what they need to in order to promote their new celebrity line (yes, the Ks are considered celebs & it took a lot of our fellow Americans to make that happen). Good for Mayor Spano for taking a few minutes out of his busy day to stop by to support the store (any Mayor would & should) as it gives him an opportunity to take advantage of the press corps covering the event & remind them of all the amazing things Yonkers has to offer (that's smart PR for the city!). Lastly, thank you Patch and all the reporters who run around Westchester trying to bring news & event coverage right to our fingertips in nearly real time. With most news outlets cutting back significantly on staff & resources, we miss out on a lot of things that would otherwise be covered. Most of us appreciate those efforts & understand that the media world is changing right before our eyes. So we'll take the stories you provide with thanks & be grateful that they're not being delivered in 140 characters or less, & not worry about typos! The others should volunteer as editors!

I think we WERE volunteering as editors Taryn, hence the suggestions. But we shouldn't have to...that's the responsibility of the author (or paid editors).
