The A & P ON 119 AND PATHMARK ARE SCHEDULED TO CLOSE TODAY. WHAT’S NEXT?
SHUTTLE SERVICE FROM MANHATTAN AVE TO SHOPRITE…REDUCED PRICES AT MORTON WILLIAMS…A NEW TENANT EXPECTED SOON AT PATHMARK LOCATION…SUPERMARKET POSSIBILITY AT A & P PROPERTY IF TOWN ALLOWS EXPANSION OF SPACE
Every Wednesday starting on April 20, 2011 the town will provide shuttle service to Shop Rite at 12 noon. The next stop will be 100 Manhattan Ave. and the next stop will be public housing Oak St. and Maple St. We will then journey down Central Ave. to Shop Rite. We will return at 2:30 pm and will drop people off in reverse order of the above. The schedule and stops are what will be done initially and we will adjust according to the needs of those who take advantage of the service. Shop Rite has been working with the town on numerous initiatives – contributing funds to town programs and providing substantial food donations to town programs at the Theodore Young Community Center, Town Hall and to the Greenburgh Nature Center. If those who take advantage of the shuttle service request that we make stops at other supermarkets along the route we will try to accommodate their request. If we did not provide shuttle service to residents of Manhattan Ave to an area supermarket it would have created significant hardships. Some residents don’t have cars and have walked to the supermarket on Route 119 for many years.
MORTON WILLIAMS REDUCING PRICES—APPLYING FOR WIC LICENSE NOW THAT PATHMARK IS CLOSING
Morton Williams Supermarket, in the Christmas Tree shopping center, has lowered prices across the board. Savings are clearly marked in every aisle, with 200 items on sale every week. Every department has introduced larger sized family products, and they continue to prepare fresh food daily. The store also accepts EBT and has applied for a WIC license. If there is something a customer would like to see, he/she should should let the store manager know, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The sales circular may be found each week at www.mortonwilliams.com. Morton Williams is located in the same complex as Pathmark.
LANDLORD OF PATHMARK SUPERMARKET NEGOTIATING LEASE WITH NEW TENANT—I have been advised that the landlord of the supermarket that had housed PATHMARK is close to an agreement with a new tenant. We anticipate that an announcement could be made within the next month. The good news: We don’t expect the store to stay vacant for a significant period of time.
WE’RE WORKING HARD TO HELP OWNER OF PROPERTY THAT HOUSED THE A & P ON ROUTE 119 TO REPLACE SUPERMARKET WITH ANOTHER SUPERMARKET. Earlier this month I met with the owners representative of the landlord that currently leases to the A & P on Route 119 (Crossroads Shopping Center). I have been advised that the landlord would be receptive to renting the space to another supermarket --provided the town allows for the expansion of the existing building. The A & P is going to close down the A & P on Route 119 in the middle of April. There is at least one supermarket that is very interested in relocating to Crossroads provided that they be allowed to expand from 38,000 square feet to approximately 55,000 square feet. Modern day supermarkets require more space than the supermarkets of the 20th century. The owner of the property is reaching out to potential supermarket tenants. Hopefully, the landlord will give us some good news soon and we can work with them to help them lease the space to another supermarket.

Hastings Waterfront | Come help raise funds for the local community outreach not-for-profit organization, known to most as Project SHARE. The basic premise is simple, local high schoolers and craftspeople have donated handmade ceramic bowls and each guest is asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised will go directly to SHARE the Project so they can continue to help end hunger and break social barriers. Local vendors have also donated soup for all to sample. As well, there will be a clay project for kids to do and a local band to enjoy. *Rain date: May 14th
Friday May 6 @ 8pm
Ed Kowalczyk of LIVE and Graham Parker will perform at the Irvington Town Hall Theater on in a special benefit concert
As the lead singer and songwriter of the group LIVE (Lightning Crashes, I Alone, etc.) which sold over 20 million CDs worldwide, Ed Kowalczyk enjoys a huge international following. LIVE has been one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the 1990s & 2000s. One of the main things that have enabled LIVE to maintain a devoted fan base is the substantial and durable nature of their lyrics, which have often reflected Kowalczyk's personal & spiritual concerns.
