Hyde Park, NY: Park Plaza looks for a new supermarket and it won't be Stop & Shop
"A little competition is great for everybody," she said. "We want the competition to keep the prices down." Right now, Stop & Shop is "the only game in town,"
No name has been given for the supermarket, which would go into a new building to be built in a vacant space of about five acres at the rear of the 15-acre site. No deal has been signed yet, DiBrizzi said.
"We're in negotiation with a couple different supermarkets," he said.
It won't be Stop & Shop, which already plans to move its Hyde Park store across Route 9 to the Hyde Park Mall, where it would build a new store.
A new King Kullen supermarket and retail shopping center may soon occupy a mostly vacant parcel of land in Island Park. The site's owner, John Vitale of Barnum Land Development LLC, has filed an application with the Hempstead town board requesting that the area be rezoned as a business district.
