End-of-Year Goal for Opening Walgreens at Ex-D'Agostino Site
If all goes according to plan, Walgreens could open in Chappaqua by the end of the year. Al Callegari of DLC Management Corp., which is helping the pharmacy chain with its move, told Patch about the opening goal.
Walgreens to take over 411 King St. from grocery chain D'Agostino, which resulted in the hamlet losing its only major supermarket.
On June 6, Walgreens received approval from New Castle's Architectural Review Board to make changes to the building. A plan submitted to the town shows that this includes a move of an entrance door from the left side to the front-left section of the structure.
Callegari said that Walgreens is "fully committed to the store. The next steps include finalizing an architectural plan for the building and to get a building permit; the company already has a permit for demolition, he said.
A copy of Walgreens' submitted plan to the town is attached as a PDF file. To view its details, use the zoom in function.
Frannie's Expands to New York City with YoArt
A little more than a year since opening in Mount Kisco, has branched out to a major second location in New York City. Its new eatery is called YoArt and it opened at the famous Plaza Hotel in late May. Set in the Plaza Food Hall, YoArt is already making its mark, whether it's with with Tony Awards guests or a mention in The New York Times.
Fran Albanese, who co-owns Frannie's with her husband, Isi, said the idea came when a representative involved with the food hall's concept visited on several occasions.
For Albanese, so far so good.
"We are doing wonderfully," she wrote to Patch. "The experience of "creating your own masterpiece" is very well-received in NYC!"
Albanese does not rule out expanding again, but added that "there is nothing set in stone yet."
