YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Mrs. Green's Neighborhood Market in Yorktown will remain open despite a major company shake-up, which involves the closing of five “under-performing” stores and the resignation of its chief executive officer. The company says the move will allow it to focus on its “five core Westchester stores,” which includes Yorktown.

The grocery store chain, located in the Triangle Center, is known for offering organic, locally-sourced produce and healthy-living products. Over the next several weeks, Mrs. Green’s will begin restocking stores in Yorktown, Briarcliff, Mt. Kisco, Eastchester and Larchmont. It will also close two Connecticut locations in Stamford and Fairfield as well as newer locations in the West Village, Rye and Tarrytown. According to the company's press release, it will “provide severance packages and transition services to impacted managers and associates.”

“Mrs. Green’s Neighborhood Market has been a part of the fabric of the Westchester community for three decades and this announcement demonstrates our long-term commitment to providing our customers with the locally-sourced produce and healthy-living products they love,” read a statement attributed to Mrs. Green's. “While the closure of any location is difficult—especially because our customers and communities have supported us—they are also necessary as we focus on our core, profitable stores.”

As part of Mrs. Green's “strategic direction,” CEO Pat Brown will step down. His duties will be taken over by existing management while the company searches for a replacement.

“We thank Pat Brown and all of our hard-working associates for their commitment to the company, and look forward to working with our new leadership team as we get back to doing what we do best—providing our customers with healthy, locally-sourced produce,” the company added.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
