DeCicco & Sons will expand its footprint in with a new supermarket planned to open next summer in Westchester.
The company announced that it will be opening its ninth location in Eastchester as soon as summer 2020. The newest store will be located at 777 White Plains Road, replacing the Acme Supermarket that recently announced it will be closing in the fall.
In a statement, John DeCicco Jr., the CEO of DeCicco & Sons, said that, “we believe that our focus on quality and exceptional service will resonate strongly with the Eastchester community. We look forward to meeting our neighbors and friends in our new location.”
Currently, the DeCicco family operates markets in Ardsley, Armonk, Brewster, Harrison, Larchmont, Millwood, Pelham and Somers. The newest location is expected to bring upwards of 150 jobs to Eastchester.
“Our employees have a big impact on the experience in our store, as well as the product we put-out to our customers. We know that taking very good care of our employees, translates into our employees taking exceptional care of our patrons,” Luisa DeCicco, Director of Human Resources said.
“These positions offer a 401k retirement plan, affordable quality health coverage, company-paid maternity and paternity leave, college scholarships, excellent opportunities for career advancement within the company, and a pay- rate that is well above our industry average.”
Anyone with interest in applying for a job can do so online, DeCicco noted, including Acme Supermarket employees that found themselves out of a job due to the store closing.
“We are planning an extensive renovation prior to the opening in Summer 2020,”
Mike Puma, DeCicco & Sons Director of Operations, said. “We will be renovating the store from the floor to ceiling to bring the location up to our DeCicco & Sons environmental standards. This includes highly efficient heating, ventilation, cooling, and refrigeration systems. Nearly all of our mechanical systems will be ‘smart-enabled’ to ensure the smallest carbon footprint.”
According to the developers, the new Eastchester location will “incorporate many features that have made DeCicco & Sons stores a culinary destination in the lower Hudson Valley. The store will highlight DeCicco & Sons’ curated charcuterie and cheese, freshly rolled sushi, in-house bakery, as well as its award-winning produce and prepared meals.”
The team also plans to build an extensive beer retail and in-store pub, where educational events and tastings will take place.
“Westchester is where we work and live,” Vice President Chris DeCicco added. “Our stores are committed to supporting the surrounding communities.”
Separate from Decicco & Sons, there are DeCicco Family Markets in Katonah, Scarsdale and Jefferson Valley in Westchester as well as New City in Rockland County and Cornwall in Orange County.
