Armonk’s Only Supermarket Closes
22 Feb, 2012
Over in Armonk, residents have lost their only supermarket, as reported by our friends at AllAboutArmonk.com:
As expected, the Armonk A&P has closed its doors for good. Most of us would agree that it was never a great supermarket, but it served the needs of the community. We stood in the interior of the store as everything remaining was being cut up for scrap material.
The entire store was being demolished and the walls and shelves were cut up and put out in carting bins. The scrap collector was on hand to haul the materials off in big dumpsters. The A&P’s outdoor signs were down.
Residents gathered to say their goodbyes to the employees; unfortunately, customers were turned away at the locked door.
Resident Marla Shechtman said she is heartbroken because the supermarket was the heart of Armonk and a place where she saw so many people in town.
If this was your town, what would you do?
