There’s a lot of activity on Palmer Avenue in Larchmont, good news for residents and store owners who’ve been working to breathe life back into many empty storefronts.
Stephanie’s Kloset – 1917 Palmer Avenue: The clothing and accessory store for girls (and their moms) has moved a few yards east into half the enormous space that was Ann Taylor, closed now for almost two years.
We are hearing that a Natural Food Market will fill the other half there as soon as January.
10538 Bicycles– Joelle Litsky, who co-owned Larchmont Bicycle in Mamaroneck, which closed in 2014 (are you following this?) hopes to open a new bike shop in February in a space she’s looking at on Palmer, or very nearby. “I love Larchmont,” she says, “and there is no bicycle store here anymore. Every town should have one!”
And while we’re at it, our friends at MacInspires at 1923 Palmer want us to remind you that registration is now open for some great programs in January.
Just a side note- next to Stephanie’s Kloset is a little pocket park with a book kiosk, and some tables, where kids can pick up and drop off books. One of our editors was a little, um, surprised to see her son bring home a copy of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
We asked Larchmont Mayor Lorraine Walsh about this, and she writes, “Perhaps the kiosks need some additional signage regarding what materials are appropriate to be shared.”
Correction: The book kiosk in the pocket park is not associated with the Mamaroneck Schools Foundation as previously reported. Kiosks in Flint and Turtle Parks are. The pocket park kiosk is a Village-installed book share.
