Harrison, NY (PRWEB) August 24, 2012
DeCicco Family Markets, a second generation grocery chain with eight locations in Westchester and Putnam Counties, proudly announces its ninth and newest location on Halstead Avenue in Harrison, replacing the Food City that had operated at that location for 25 years. The store will open its doors in mid- to late September.
The 13,000 square foot store offers shoppers classic DeCicco’s quality, variety, and service in a contemporary market, with full-service deli, meat department, bakery, and seafood departments; a large gourmet and specialty selection; a sushi bar; and hundreds of cheeses and beers from around the world. The produce department will carry fresh items from local farmers, as well as organic and international vegetables and fruits. A team of butchers brings together Italian family meat traditions with a wide selection of healthful and gourmet cuts. The DeCicco’s bakery will prepare breads and other baked goods from scratch every day, upholding the chain’s reputation for freshness.
The second generation of DeCiccos, John Jr., Chris, and Joe Jr., opened their first area food market in Ardsley in 2006, bringing the type of service and quality that DeCicco’s has been known for in its 30-plus years of operation. The Westchester/Putnam stores uphold the DeCicco’s tradition of keeping a firm eye on the future while never forgetting the promises and mindset of the past.
“In this era of technology and virtual connections, we pride ourselves on the personal interaction we have with our customers and the service that shoppers expect from their favorite neighborhood food market,” says John DeCicco Jr. of DeCicco’s. “We look forward to bringing jobs to Harrison and helping rebuild the community. As part of our integration into each of our DeCicco’s neighborhoods, we also donate one percent of store sales to the PTA in the local school district to use as they see fit.”
DeCicco’s and Tighe Rubinstein, store manager and Harrison resident, look forward to meeting their Harrison neighbors at the store’s grand opening. The store is located at 7 Halstead Avenue, Harrison, New York, 10529, http://www.deciccos.com.
