Pelham DeCicco's Completes Major Renovations

PELHAM, N.Y. – Major interior renovations to the 28-year-old DeCicco’s Family Market in Pelham are complete, with just minor additions left for the popular Fifth Avenue supermarket.

“Things have come along quite nicely,” said assistant manager Alex Hyacinthe. “We’re glad to have the new store and to be servicing the community.”

Pelham residents appreciate the renovations , which include replacing the old wood floor with tile and off-white beige shelves with dark copper shelves, plus expanding the seafood department and redesigning the produce section. Work has been under way since March.

A recent change involved moving the bakery from the back of the supermarket to the front. The cakes, cookies and other treats replace the drugs and baby section that was previously located there.

The redesign totaled $500,000 to $600,000, said founder John DeCicco Sr. He is pleased with the many changes to his one of eight supermarkets in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties because his customers are happy.

“They’re very happy – if they’re happy, we’re happy,” said DeCicco. Bakery sales have jumped more than 25 percent since it was moved to the front.

The most difficult part of the renovation was “doing it while we’re open,” he said.

The only items left for the supermarket that opened in April 1984 are beer growlers and shelves for the meat department.
