The town has tried unsuccessfully to entice a major grocery retailer to open a store in Ticonderoga, but the presence of discount retailer Wal-Mart has been the discouraging factor, officials have said.
The last supermarket in town was a Tops Friendly Market, which closed in 2006. That space in a local shopping center has been filled by a Peeble’s Department Store that opened earlier this year.
Malaney said the CDS study will also show what the market would be in Ticonderoga for a food co-op.
“Once the final report is released, we’ll have it on the town’s and PRIDE’s websites. It will be shared with the community.”
That may be followed by a public-information meeting to discuss the study, she said, and decide where to go from there.
