Dollar Dream has been looking to close for a while now – as Patch discovered from their ad on Craigslist, where the owners admitted almost a year ago that they were eager to spend time with their grandchildren.
Hopefully retirement will come to them soon, but what could follow may surprise you.
The Tarrytown Centre property owner has come before the Planning Board looking to turn this store into a fast food restaurant with a drive-through window.
This would involve some reconfiguring of traffic lanes and parking bays, but apparently no new construction beyond an ordering station and a pick-up window.
The idea is to make the plaza entrance by Dollar Dream only an exit, with one lane simply to leave as today, and another to drive by an order station and then the pick-up window.
The board expressed concern about what would happen if the line had more than the planned space for six cars (think Burger King at Elmsford’s Bed, Bath & Beyond complex, which backs up across the light), so the applicant said they would consider a pre-order station holding place.
The property owner said they would bring an application to the Planning Board if the fast-food provider continues to be interested.
This fast-food provider is rumored to be KFC; the property owner as of last fall is Kurtsam Realty.
Should this complex have another fast food drive-thru? Weigh in in the comments.
