The Real Deal: Westchester County’s second Lowe’s opening in Yorktown Heights
Almost four months after announcing the closure of dozens of stores through the U.S. and Canada, home improvement retailer Lowe’s plans to open a 124,000-square-foot store in Yorktown Heights, according to Breslin Realty Development, which is marketing three other buildings on the site as part of a new shopping center. Breslin Realty, a Garden City-based developer and brokerage, said the opening at 3200 Crompond Road will take place on March 16. Westchester County already has one Lowe’s located at the Ridge Hill Shopping Center in Yonkers. The new locale hosted a hiring event in late February, the Yorktown Daily Voice reported. “It’s required a lot of patience, as do all my projects, but it’s been worth the wait for the residents of the region to have a great home improvement store on the property that has become an eyesore for many years,” Breslin Realty CEO Wilbur Breslin told the outlet. Groundbreaking on the Lowe’s began in late 2017. But the retailer’s long-awaited opening in Yorktown, which some public officials have said could create up to 200 local jobs, has been delayed for several months.
