DeCicco Family Markets, a second-generation independent grocer with 10 locations in New York’s Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange Counties, has opened its 11th location in the newly constructed Armonk Square in downtown Armonk.
“We welcome our Armonk neighbors into the DeCicco’s family and look forward to building the types of personal relationships that they expect from their neighborhood food market,” said John DeCicco Jr. “As part of our integration into each of our DeCicco’s neighborhoods, we also donate one percent of store sales to the PTA in the local school district to use as they see fit.”
The two-story, 18,000-square-foot store, second in size to only the company’s Brewster store, was designed by Antonucci and Associates and incorporates rich cherry wood walls, custom tile flooring, extensive stone work and a copper and tin ceiling. It’s offerings include a full-service deli; meat department featuring a selection of prime, aged steaks; bakery with all products baked on the premises; fresh seafood department; large gourmet and specialty selection; and hundreds of cheeses and beers from around the world. The produce department carries fresh items from local farmers as well as organic and international vegetables and fruits. Included in an expanded prepared foods section are a new line of prepared dinner items.
Unique to this store is its second-floor gastropub that sells wine by the glass and two dozen beers on tap, a demo kitchen featuring cooking classes by celebrity chefs, and bocce courts. Shoppers are invited to bring coffee or gelato upstairs and to enjoy other fare created by DeCicco’s, as well as Armonk’s own Fortina restaurant. A second-floor space also can be rented for parties and special events.
DeCicco Family Markets was founded in 1973 by John, Joe and Frank DeCicco. It began as a small storefront in the Bronx, offering a choice of high-quality food to its growing array of customers.
