DeCicco & Sons Opens in Bedford
The chain now has nine locations in Westchester and one in Putnam
BEDFORD, N.Y. – Grocery store chain DeCicco & Sons opened a new location in Bedford on Friday, March 25.
The chain, which now has nine locations in Westchester and one in Putnam, began in 1973 with a small storefront in the Bronx.
John DeCicco, the CEO of DeCicco & Sons, said that the Bedford location had been in the works for 10 years. It’s filling the space left vacant by Key Food Marketplace.
“We’ve been working on the Bedford location for a long time,” DeCicco said. “We actually secured and worked on the lease from at least all the way back to 2012. Finally, we made it here. Everyone’s been really impressed with the store so far, lots of positive feedback.”
DeCicco later said that this store also uses an environmentally friendly refrigeration system. The store is also looking into using solar energy.
“This store is our seventh location in Westchester that features a natural refrigerant system,” DeCicco said. “What that means is that all of the refrigerants in the store occurred from the environment and does not harm the ozone layer. We were one of the first stores in New York State to actually implement this technology back in 2014 in our Larchmont store. Since then, we’ve been upgrading all of our existing stores and all of our new stores opening with this new technology.”
DeCicco & Sons is located at 422 Old Post Road in Bedford. The store is open Monday-Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. On Sundays, the store is open from 8 to 7:30 p.m.
