Cheese store coming to downtown Bronxville

Anyone know anything about the cheese store that appears to be moving into a shop on Pondfield Rd. in Bronxville? Last time I walked past the building (forgot the number), there was a printer-paper sheet of a mouse with the words "Could it be true?" on it. Is there a timeline? I would love to see a good cheese market there.

      Pondefield between Park and Tanglewylde.

    2. Finally something we could use!!

      1. Did it say "cheese store" or was there just a picture of a mouse? It sounds like it could be anything.

          Nah, I was also luckily enough to hear the owner talking about it — should've asked for details… but yes, very useful.

        2. A cheese store would be nice, although I don't know if the town could support it. A very nice cheese store was there in Bronxville in the 80's but went out of business after a few years. It was on the corner near where CVS is. They were my first experience with fine cheese and pate. At the time I worked at the wine shop down the street and we would all chip in and get an assortment for lunch a few times a week. Although the A&P does a pretty good job with their cheese selection.

            JMF, I have a similar fear. The problem in Bronxville is that, despite its restaurants, I would not describe it as a foodie town, filled as it is with social X rays who really don't care what they eat as long as it doesn't have calories! If the cheese store could draw from other parts of lower Westchester, that would help, but then the problem in B'ville is always the parking...

              A&P is not bad, but they do not have Valdeon. Can't believe that stuff was easier to get in Pennsylvania.

            2. Apparently this will be in the empty storefront next to Continentale Hair Salon. I'm glad that it's not going into the Scarborough Fair storefront, which would be too big for this town and bound to fail. A smaller shop, near to the parking lot, makes this a much better site for a cheese store.

                Well, I think Bronxville is a better locale than Dobbs Ferry. There was a small cheese store there which failed. I work in Dobbs Ferry and even I couldn't manage to get there because of the terrible parking situation. I always wanted to get there AFTER work but it was impossible (and I didn't want to leave a stinky cheese in the work fridge...true I could have walked, but our office is by the railroad tracks and it is a long walk up a steep hill).

                So to reiterate, Bronxville is MUCH better.
