You may have noticed the shiny new signs on Jay Street and Bedford Road declaring Katonah to be open on Sundays, followed by three words: Shop, Dine, Stroll.
We've noticed some shops are and some aren't. To clear up the confusion about where you can shop and dine and where you may as well just stroll, we went to the , the organization behind the campaign to promote the village as "a Sunday town."
"We've often found consumers unaware that so many Katonah businesses are open on Sundays," said Bart Tyler, chamber treasurer. "So we're trying to raise awareness in the hopes of making a great business day even greater."
About 60 percent of retailers and restaurateurs are open on Sundays, according to chamber data, and more are considering the move to keep doors open a seventh day.
"For many of us, it is one of our top sales days for the week," Tyler said. , and cite Sundays as their second or third best retail day, according to Edris Scherer, chamber co-president.
She said they hoped businesses would consider opening at a minimum from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. every Sunday, noting that Sunday shoppers are often first time visitors discovering Katonah, when they are "shopping for recreation."
"They are more apt to impulse shop—generating a higher average sale," she said. "Sunday is Target’s second biggest shopping day – so people do shop then."
And for those who want to stay for more than two hours, are now up indicating that's possible without getting a ticket.
