CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - Nearly five months after initially agreeing to take over D'Agostino's former home at 411 King St., New Castle Town Planner David Brito confirmed that Walgreens is still coming to Chappaqua.
The news may not excite residents, as many community members were hoping to see the vacancy filled by another grocery store . Currently, the only grocery store in New Castle is A&P in Millwood.
When D'Agostino closed its doors for good and sold the space to Walgreens following Tropical Storm Irene in August, officials, as well as residents, have been waiting for updates.
"It's really up to them," said Brito of Walgreens. Brito said there was a delay in the process when D'agostino and Walgreens were determining which store would pay for repairs, including damage suffered from Irene.
Brito could not give any timetable as he said the town has not heard from Walgreens officials recently.
