Two long-time Trumbull Center businesses, with deep town roots, are closing this week. Marie\u2019s Sandwich Shop, 920 White Plains Road, was serving its final customers Monday afternoon, after 47 years. \u201cIt\u2019s an economic decision,\u201d said owner Kathleen Hallahan. \u201cTraffic in the center has been significantly reduced and even more so by the loss of Porricelli\u2019s. We can\u2019t keep limping along.\u201d Hallahan has been owner for 7 years. \u201cWe will definitely miss the customers and the hometown feeling of this area,\u201d she said. Peter DiNardo, part of the group that owns Trumbull Center, said the news came as a complete surprise to him today. "It's can't be more of a surprise to me," DiNardo said Monday afternoon. "She was a good tenant and it's really unfortunate." DiNardo said his office talked with Hallahan about a month ago, and the owner was considering expanding dinner offerings and serving beer, wine and alcohol to help promote more business. He said the he believes the closing is based on economic issues but that Hallahan always paid her rent on time. DiNardo recently wrote a letter to the Times about the future of Trumbull Center. Mackenzie\u2019s Pharmacy, just a few doors down from Marie\u2019s is closing Friday and reopening as CVS on Monday, March 18. Mackenzie\u2019s has been in business for about 80 years. The name and store set-up is changing at the pharmacy, but the faces won\u2019t, according to Mackenzie\u2019s owner Pat Santella. \u201cI want to thank all the customers we\u2019ve had over the years,\u201d Santella told the Times. \u201cThey have been really wonderful and I hope they will stay.\u201d Santella, who has been with MacKenzie\u2019s for 26 years, announced the change in an advertisement that ran in last week\u2019s Trumbull Times. \u201cPat and Kathy and staff of Mackenzie\u2019s will remain at the new store and will look forward to continuing to serve you, now with the extensive resources of CVS\/Pharmacy,\u201d the announcement in last week\u2019s paper said. DiNardo said he did know that Santella was in talks with CVS about the switch but just found out that a deal had been reached last week. Mackenzie\u2019s closes this Friday, March 15 at 5 p.m. Santella asks that anyone who ordered a prescription pick it up by Friday at 5, before the switch over. All prescription files will be transferred to the new CVS.
