DeCicco & Sons is planning to open its first store in the state of Connecticut, specifically in Greenwich's Glenville neighborhood.

DeCicco & Sons, an independent supermarket chain with 11 stores in New York state’s Westchester County, plans to open its first Connecticut location at a vacant supermarket site in the Glenville area of Greenwich that was occupied by a Stop & Shop until summer 2023, according to a published report.

“The owner [real estate executive Guy Sutton] is pleased to announce that a lease has been signed with DeCicco & Sons for them to open a new store at the shopping center,” attorney Tom Heagney told the Greenwich Time newspaper.

DeCicco & Sons’ Connecticut store will feature a new rear entrance, an enclosed loading dock, and the addition of a large refrigeration unit, which will require site-plan approval from the local planning and zoning commission, the publication reported.

“The loss of the neighborhood supermarket in 2023 was a blow to the community and area merchants, who relied on the store to bring in customers to the Glenville shopping center,” noted Staff Writer Robert Marchant in his article about the new store.

As part of its recently revealed Growing Together strategy, Ahold Delhaize has revealed its intention to shutter additional underperforming Shop & Stop locations. Despite that, the banner recently debuted a flagship location at the Allston Yards development in Boston

As yet, no timeline has been provided for when construction would begin at the Glenville site or when the new store would open. 

Founded in 1973, family-run DeCicco & Sons has “a proud history of bringing the largest selection of high-quality food available to customers with a friendly, personal touch,” its website notes.
