Five Questions for Pelham Gift Shop Owner

PELHAM, N.Y. – Susan Sepulveda opened Sue's Corner on Fifth Avenue in Pelham four decades ago. She has lived in Yorktown Heights for more than 20 years. She is a former board member on the Pelham Chamber of Commerce.

Question: What is your favorite aspect of Pelham?

Answer: The friends that you make. Customers are friends. They're not really customers.

Q: Do you have a particularly fond memory of your time here in Pelham?

A: It's basically the friendships that you make. It's not even work. I don't really know how else to say it. The events that we put on [with] the chamber. I've been involved. It's been fun.

Q: Do you have a favorite place in Pelham?

A: Villa Nova [E. Restaurant]. They always host some of the chamber meetings and stuff so I'm familiar with them.

Q: How did you balance your job at Sue's Corner with your role as board member for the Chamber of Commerce?

A: That's why I'm not a board member anymore. It's a lot of work if you want to do it right. Not a lot of people volunteer anymore. Everybody's got a job and a job after that. But I still help them out. It comes down to a core six to eight people that do everything, which is the way it is in any organization.

Q: Do you think you will ever leave Pelham or open another store somewhere else?

A: No, I'll retire. We tried it. My brother had a place in Sag Harbor [in the Hamptons], but it was definitely seasonal and you can't survive seasonally unless you're there a long time. But it was a fun adventure.
