DeCicco C-Town replacing D'Agostino in Jefferson Valley (Yorktown)

Bill | Oct 24, 2003 12:42 PM

I noticed last weekend that the D'Agostino supermarket in Jefferson Valley (across from the Jefferson Valley Mall) had closed. Today I drove past and there are signs up saying that DeCicco Marketplace will be opening. I've heard of them, they are apparently in Scarsdale, Bronxville and Pelham and I assume they are kind of like Turco's (which is already in Yorktown). Are they any good? Are their prices decent? I stopped shopping at D'Agostino when they stopped having decent sales; I used to buy fish there but their prices were outrageous (and never went on sale).

Of course, the question is will Yorktown support another gourmet market like this. It's in a different area than Turco's (and the Food Emporium within walking distance of it). There is a fairly sizable senior citizen population in that area, and they were probably D'Agostino's best customers. There are plenty of supermarkets in the area for people who are willing to drive a few miles, so they won't get most people merely because they're convenient.

Personally, I would have been much happier to see Trader Joe's opening in that location, but I've asked the manager at the Danbury, CT store about new store locations and they apparently have no plans to open a store in the Northern Westchester area (presumably if they did, the long deserted A&P in Briarcliff Manor would be the obvious location).
