SOMERS, N.Y. - DeCicco & Sons has announced the official opening of their Somers location for Friday, May 3.
After several months of delays, as well as hundreds of emails, phone calls and Facebook messages from eager customers, the brand new DeCicco & Sons located on Route 202 in Somers, will welcome its first patrons into the grocery store. The store will open its doors at 7:30 a.m., with a ribbon cutting scheduled for 1 p.m.
“We are very excited for this opening,” said John DeCicco Jr., the chain’s CEO. “This store continues our trend of creating locations that are integral parts of their local community. Our stores are places where people do more than shop, they are places where people gather, and we wanted to make sure that was reflected in the design. We want our stores to be comfortable and inviting, as well as convenient.”
DeCicco & Sons Somers location is 20,000 square feet of brand new construction. The store will feature indoor and outdoor balcony seating, a bar with kitchen, a lounge and catering space. The store will also include fresh food stations such as a salad bar, hot food bar, sushi, antipasti bar, juice and coffee bar as well as a selection of grocery and specialty items, meat, poultry, seafood and produce.
“It’s been a long time coming. We are happy to be here, and we know that the community is happy to have us opening. They have been telling us for months,” said DeCicco Jr., in speaking about the much-anticipated opening. “We’d like to thank the Town of Somers, Supervisor Morrissey, the Somers Town Boards, as well as Heritage Hills, the unions representing our employees, and most-of-all the community of Somers, who have been vocal in their support. It is thanks to all of them that we are finally able to open.”
Situated adjacent to the Heritage Hills community, the store is the eighth location for DeCicco and Sons in the Hudson Valley.
