    1. I had heard a rumor about this from a neighbor but refrained from posting without some confirmation so thank you for this! I thought it was a pie in the sky type thing but this gives me hope that I won't have to drive 45min+ for my fairway fix.

      1. That would be great! I hope it happens.

        1. Wow, that would be GREAT. This would be an actual Westchester store, as opposed to Pelham which may as well be in the Bronx for most Westchester residents (Paramus is just as close for me). With Nanuet opening soon they will really have the area covered (although I store further north near Yorktown or Mt. Kisco would be nice!).

          BTW I just emailed someone at Fairway who had responded to a complaint I had a couple of months ago and said I heard the rumor and hope it's true. If I get any encouraging news in response I will post it here.

            I heard on the news tonight (WNYC, during All Things Considered) that Fairway is going public with an IPO that is odd in that it is, basically, private. No info will go to the public about their revenue or profit. The story also said that at least 3 more stores are in the planning stages.

              They were already bought out a few years ago when they started expanding. I know of Nanuet and Westbury in the works, I guess that Greenburgh would be #3. I would not be surprised to hear that they're looking all over the place to fill in the empty spaces. I just wonder how far north they're considering.

                This is something new. Going public with a not-quite-public IPO. It's something special for smaller businesses. You can learn about it (the Fairway going public talk) at the WNYC website; Brian Lehrer had a guest on earlier this week to talk about it (this is not the report on heard on the news later that day).

                As for north, it seems that all the big fancy food chain stores think either there are transportation issues or not enough business where we live. Plus we all seem quite willing to travel for food shopping. I'm guessing it's the small highways and local roads that are their issues.

                  Westbury is opening on August 22nd.

            2. That would be wonderful... I HATE the traffic on the Hutch to go to the one in Pelham Manor.

                Wow, that would be fantastic, it's 5 minutes from where I live, wonder if it will "kill" the new Stop N Shop :)
