More comings and goings among retailers in Scarsdale and Hartsdale: A friend reported that she climbed the stairs in the Wilgren Building above Metro Deli to ask Lena of Peter Tailoring to do an alteration. Lena was a favorite in the community and often helped entire families get their clothing adjusted for big occasions. My friend got to the door of the shop only to find that Lena and the scores of dresses and her wonderful bulletin board of bat mitzvah and wedding photos were gone. The jumble of seamstresses, mannequins and shoes had been totally cleaned out.
A sign on the door indicated that someone named Top Tailor was now in business at the site – and the new tailor had apparently purchased the business.
We contacted Rush Wilson who owns the building to find out what happened to Lena. Rush said, "After many years of excellent service, Lena decided to retire. I spoke to her last week and she had just returned from a couple of weeks in Italy. She sounds good and rested. She sold the business to an excellent tailor and I hope everyone will give him a try."
Sadly Indigo Chic in Hartsdale is also gone. The store had great fashions for women. Perhaps they didn't get enough foot traffic or shoppers were discouraged by the lack of parking? Indigo Chic also has a location in the Rye Ridge Shopping Center – so if you're looking for them – take a drive.
