Rumorville: What's Going in the old Larchmont Store?

While we are on the subject of missing Active Sports …and the Larchmont Store before it, what will be going into this long-empty prime store front at 1914 Palmer Avenue?

Many of us have heard the rumors: a Payless Shoe Store. A Pain Quotidien bakery/restaurant. An Apple store . They are only rumors, according to the Mayor.

Larchmont Mayor Josh Mandell told us, "No applications have been submitted" by any business.  And he says he is not discriminating on the type of business that may be interested in coming to the retail-challenged Village saying, "We’ll listen to all interested parties."

Mandell says he called Apple himself when he heard the rumor, but whomever he spoke with knew nothing of a move into Larchmont.

Unlike bigger towns and cities, "we don’t have the ability to do merchant targetting," or control what types of businesses make applications or inquiries," Mandell said. But he says he would love to have "something like an Apple store that is sustainable economically," because its prices can’t be undercut on the Internet, as Apple does not discount its products.

Also, speaking of Palmer Avenue, Michou, and its beautiful handmade jewelry and housewares will be moving out of the shop and going strictly online at www.michouny.com. Catch the big moving sale.

Oh- and while we are at it, the Rye Ridge Shopping Center wants you to know a new Chipolte store opens there April 30.

There is a Subway on Purchase Street in Rye. How is that doing?

My understanding is that the old Larchmont Store space is being brought up to code by the owner and has been split into two spaces. One is 1,000st ft and the other 2,500 sq ft.

The real question is not what one wants to have but what a business can do profitably. Look West all men and women, grow up with the country” (actually southwest, and this a slight re-write of an another words). So, for example, look towards Pelham Manor.

Anybody not hear of Fairway? Anybody not see how “land” was “re-purposed” for the beginning of the 21st century? Anybody not understand the tax implications?

The little separate communities of Larchmont and Mamaroneck must THINK BIG. And change or cede the future.

We have land (despite beliefs), we have intelligence. Now we must decide whether we have the courage to use them wisely. Perhaps we need a medal from the Wizard :-)

How about another Larchmont Store? Socks, underware, thread, needles, aspirin, school supplies, necessities…you know, like the old Larchmont Store. Then we don’t have to get in our cars and leave the village for another shopping destination! Maybe a Subway counter in the back!!

Lou – that’s a funny reaction to a geography lesson: I was just explaining where it is. But now that you mention it, it isn’t that far away from six other sandwich shops, two of which are brand new. On the other hand, although I can’t remember the last time I ate a sandwich, I like Subway.

Yea, Lou: it’s low-end, cheesy (and not in a dairy-like whey) and its a fast-food chain! NOT the tone and tenor of this town!

Is there somewhere else you would like to see them ?
