SPOTLIGHT

‘You will find our goods and prices right’

Every year, we mark the calendar to remind local residents to consider local merchants before traveling to the mall or going online.

Consider this: Our towns have been shopping destinations for more than a century. In December 1914, the Katonah Record advertised “Christmas gifts and table dainties” at Hoyt Bros. Department Store in Katonah. “All roads to our toys, dolls and yuletide offerings for the children and grown-ups,” they advertised. “Dry goods, gents furnishings, sweaters and mackinaw coats,” were offered, as were “furniture, carpets, rugs, crockery, glassware, novelties and rockers for Christmas gifts.”

In December 1903, H.F. Bailey & Co. in Mount Kisco featured “presents for boys, presents for girls, presents for father, mother, wife and sweetheart.” Don't wait until the last minute to buy your Christmas presents,” they advised. “At present our assortment is large and varied; but if you delay shopping many of the best and most desirable things may be sold.”

Katonah’s first jewelers, Benedict Bros., founded in Old Katonah in 1853 and relocated to “opposite the depot,” celebrated their 50th Christmas in 1903 with jewelry, sterling silver, Gorham’s tableware, cut glass, watches, fancy clocks, stationery, burnt wood and a “full line of men’s clothing, hats and caps.”

Alchemy may redesign
Playhouse if theater plan stalls

By ANTHONY R. MANCINI

The owner of the Bedford Playhouse property is planning on replacing the building’s movie theater space if it cannot secure a theater operator tenant by early next year.

Alchemy Bedford LLC, a subsidiary of Alchemy Properties, a real estate development firm that mostly works in Manhattan, has owned the Playhouse for 14 months. During a Nov. 25 public meeting, Bedford’s planning board granted Alchemy the ability to use the theater’s ground level and mezzanine space, which totals approximately 2,200 square feet, as retail space. The board also gave Alchemy the option of using a portion of the theater’s basement level directly underneath the mezzanine as part of the retail space.

Ken Horn, the president of Alchemy, said at the meeting that within the 14 months of owning the Playhouse, the theater space has already seen two operators: Clearview Cinemas and Bow Tie Cinemas, the latter of which is opting not to rent the theater next year. Mr. Horn said Alchemy has tried to negotiate lower rent with Bow Tie, offering less than $10 a square foot to rent the theater, but that Bow Tie offered around 50 cents a square foot in response, $3,000 a month, which Mr. Horn said would not be feasible.
