D’Agostino Supermarkets is disputing a landlord’s account of the closing of its Rye Brook, N.Y., store.
Nicholas D’Agostino III, president of the Larchmont, N.Y.-based company, told SN this week that the retailer did inform landlord Win Properties of its intention to close “even though we were not required to.”
Win issued a press release Monday indicating the store closed without management’s notice.
D’Agostino said the store closed “as we contemplate a remodel or other options.” The company more than four years ago said it was seeking to close its stores not located in Manhattan, and the Rye Brook location was the last remaining non-Manhattan unit. “We have been in discussions for roughly five years trying to get relief from the lease,” D’Agostino added.
