The store is opening in a former Sears department store located on one of the city’s busiest downtown streets. It aims to lure locals as well as customers from around New York City and Westchester County with the largest food assortment outside a so-called superstore and an array of products for small apartments. Sources told KosherToday that the chain hopes to emulate its large kosher section in Monticello, NY in the hope of attracting kosher consumers from throughout the metropolitan area. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based retailer, which is nearing saturation in rural and suburban markets, is eager to break into big cities such as Chicago and New York to boost expansion
