The Hunting Ridge Shopping Center here wins no beauty contest. Her outdated front façade screams 1970s, the roofline is hideous and for decades its anchor store has been one brand or another mediocre supermarket.
The last chain there was a Key Foods, the only time I’d go in is if I absolutely needed one thing and didn’t want to drive to Bedford Hills.
But in the last couple of months, the space has been gutted. The roof removed. All new everything going in.
DeCicco and Sons is coming to town.
DeCicco will be a huge improvement to Bedford’s shopping options. I like that they are family owned. The trucks in the parking lot were local plumbers and electricians. Very good, except that I’ll be living in Harrison for the next nine-ten months. Doink.
As a woman I chatted with at Ronnie Rexall said to me, if only the REST of the building would get a makeover, the strip mall might fit into town. She’s right.
A good start though!
