The family-owned and operated food retailer will take over the former Acme Supermarket at 777 White Plains Road in Eastchester and should open by summer 2020.

According to CEO John DeCicco Jr., the new location — their ninth — will be renovated from top to bottom and incorporate many of the features that have made the supermarket chain a popular shopping destination. That means an in-store pub where educational events and tastings will take place. There will also be an abundance of prepared foods, curated charcuterie and cheese, freshly rolled sushi and an in-house bakery. Plus, of course, lots of groceries and the extensive beer collection DeCicco & Son’s is known for.

The store will also be molded to the company’s high environmental standards. This includes highly efficient heating, ventilation, cooling, and refrigeration systems. And, said Mike Puma, DeCicco & Sons’ director of operations, nearly all of the mechanical systems will be “smart-enabled” to ensure the smallest carbon footprint.

The Eastchester store will also bring approximately 150 jobs to the area. The company encourages anyone interested in applying to visit, including Acme Supermarket employees recently impacted by the store’s closing.

DeCicco & Sons, founded in 2006, operates premium markets in Ardsley, Armonk, Brewster, Harrison, Larchmont, Millwood, Pelham, and Somers. The Somers one opened in May and features elements within the design that pay homage to the town’s history. It also has an aquarium.
