ARMONK, N.Y. -- DeCicco's Family Markets recently celebrated the grand opening of its 11th store in the newly constructed Armonk Square in Armonk.
The second generation grocery chain has 10 other locations around Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties and opened its doors in Armonk in June. The 18,000-square foot store is second in size to the Brewster store. The location offers shoppers "classic DeCicco’s quality, variety and service in a contemporary market, with a full-service deli; meat department featuring a selection of prime, aged steaks; bakery with all products baked on the premises; fresh seafood department; large gourmet and specialty selection; and hundreds of cheeses and beers from around the world," according to a release from the company.
Unique to the Armonk store are its second floor gastro-pub featuring a wine and beer bar, a demo kitchen featuring cooking classes and bocce courts. Shoppers can also bring coffee or gelato upstairs to enjoy brick oven pizza and other fare created by Armonk’s own Fortina restaurant. The second floor also can be rented for parties and special events.
The second generation of DeCiccos, John Jr., Chris and Joe Jr., opened their first area food market in Ardsley in 2006, according to a press release.
“We welcome our Armonk neighbors into the DeCicco’s family and look forward to building the types of personal relationships that they expect from their neighborhood food market,” says John DeCicco Jr. in the release. "As part of our integration into each of our DeCicco’s neighborhoods, we also donate one percent of store sales to the PTA in the local school district to use as they see fit.”
