Larchmont Mayor Josh Mandell told us, "No applications have been submitted" by any business. And he says he is not discriminating on the type of business that may be interested in coming to the retail-challenged Village saying, "We’ll listen to all interested parties."
Mandell says he called Apple himself when he heard the rumor, but whomever he spoke with knew nothing of a move into Larchmont.
Unlike bigger towns and cities, "we don’t have the ability to do merchant targetting," or control what types of businesses make applications or inquiries," Mandell said. But he says he would love to have "something like an Apple store that is sustainable economically," because its prices can’t be undercut on the Internet, as Apple does not discount its products.
Also, speaking of Palmer Avenue, Michou, and its beautiful handmade jewelry and housewares will be moving out of the shop and going strictly online at www.michouny.com. Catch the big moving sale.
