If you are planning to shop at the Rye Ridge Shopping Center this weekend, you may find your favorite business is closed.
The fire in Rye Ridge Shopping Center’s electrical room that happened on Wednesday will likely keep that building closed for at least the next few days, according to Rye Brook Village Manager Chris Bradbury.
Bradbury has had a few meetings with Win Ridge Realty, owner of Rye Ridge Shopping Center and their electrical engineers to make sure all concerned parties are on the same page with the progress of restoring electricity to the building, he said.
“They are working on a plan to get temporary service, maybe panels or generators, to the stores but that will take several days at least,” Bradbury said today.
All the stores from SportsTech to Chipotle and on the lower level of that building are closed. But, the D’Agostino’s side of the center is still open for business. On Thursday, the stores were still operating without Internet service, but Optimum was on site working to restore their service. Finch’s is still taking credit cards, but Rye Ridge Deli was accepting cash only.
Calls to Win Ridge Realty have not yet been returned.
