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.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

Real life is not the movies.

Things are not wrapped up in a neat bow, motivations are not explained, and things often don’t make sense.

Two weeks ago, a man driving “triple digits” in a Dodge Charger exited the Taconic State Parkway at Underhill Avenue, blew through a stop sign, and t-boned an SUV, injuring a mother and her 19-year-old daughter. Here is ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
