We're curious: If you could see one type of new business in the area for 2014, what would it be?

What sort of businesses are lacking from the towns of Yorktown and Somers? What do you need that you have to go out of town to buy? What do you want to eat that isn't represented here?

Costco! I am so tired of getting ripped off by the A&P every week when I buy groceries!
Walter E Daniels January 02, 2014 at 01:02 PM

Fairway! Perhaps in the open space near K-Mart. And yeah a real Jewish deli again! Miss Bloom's too!

Wish there was a closer Target--although, given their issues lately, maybe not...

In Yorktown Heights I would like to see a yoga studio that is different from the "hot"yoga that we already have.

STOP & SHOP! So much better than A&P - price-wise & selection-wise. Sometimes I'll go over to Ossining but the traffic can be crappy depending on the time of day. Would be great to have some more selection in the Yorktown Heights area! Turco's is too expensive and limited in grocery items. I know a lot of people want the upscale stores but can they really match the price/selection of a place like Stop & Shop?

Stop and Shop in Somers is close to the western edge of Yorktown, but a Stop and Shop right in Yorktown would be great!

This is all wishful thinking. Trader Joes will not come to yorktown because we do not have an interstate. This is why they rejected the proposed Costco site. The A&P still owns the former Food emporium site and they would rather see this site contribute to blight rather than rent it and increase competition. We do not have enough population density in Northern Westchester to support numerous businesses within the community as compared to southern westchester or northern NJ. Commercial rents are too high for small business owners without the volume of customers that is needed. Although, people in N west, Putnam and dutchess are will ing to travel for their shopping it is still not enough. Take a look around town . Almost every shopping center has a vacancy. Our lame and politically minded Chamber of commerce has done little to help small business owners and help reduce rents. They would rather be in bed with politicians and big corporations such as costco. What a shame for us in Yorktown. Thank you Mr Giordano for setting up a a small business association that will help people and not further political connections.

Target will not come to yorktown either.

Another gym in Yorktown, shoprite or trader joe in either Yorktown or Somers.

This article, like its predecessors is so useless. Fairway is not coming to Yorktown, nor is Whole Foods or Trader Joes. We could have this article posted every day for a year and hundreds of people would reply and it wouldn't make a difference. Whole Foods is probably coming to Chappaqua (where Readers Digest was). As for Target, I thought there was a chance that it would go into the State Land development on Route 202. Given the size of the proposed building, it's gotta be them or Lowes. I am confused about the request for Stop & Shop given that they're in Somers and it's 10 minutes from downtown Yorktown. It has to be closer than the Ossining store for almost everyone in Yorktown. There's also one in Peekskill for those on the west side of the Taconic.
