To make keeping kosher easier for Westchesterites, the country’s largest kosher supermarket chain, Seasons (1104 Wilmot Rd, Scarsdale; 914.472.2240), reopened its Scarsdale location last month, just in time for Passover.
Following a brief closing last fall (pursuant to a bankruptcy filing), Seasons was relaunched on March 3 under the new ownership and management of the Bistritzky family, known for one of the most famous kosher food stores on the Lower East Side, Bistritzky Kosher Gourmet Food. Originally a 2,500 sq. ft. corner store in Scarsdale, Seasons has now been upgraded with 12,000 square feet of retail space in The Golden Horseshoe Shopping Center. On-site pareve kitchens allow for food to be produced without the use of dairy or meat equipment; the space also features an on-site butcher, gourmet deli counter, bakery section, and fish-and-sushi section.
“Welcoming everyone back was truly a wonderful experience,” says David Gellman, general manager of Seasons’ Scarsdale location. “We are open; we are here; and we are committed to providing a quality kosher shopping experience with competitively priced goods for every family.” Open Sunday through Friday, Seasons closes an hour before the Sabbath. The rebooted Seasons is reportedly focusing on heightening the shopping experience at its Tristate locations. Its highly anticipated arrival in the community was eloquently expressed by one eager patron at the store’s recent grand reopening (which was attended by approximately 500 people): “Even if I didn’t keep kosher, I would shop here.”
