Armonk Retail Roundup: Star Spangled Carousel Shifts Focus

Welcome to our first Armonk edition of Retail Roundup!

Star Spangled Carousel to Scale Back Storefront, Keep Online Shopping

Star Spangled Carousel, a kids' and infants' clothing store that has been an Armonk fixture for about 30 years, plans to get smaller.

Owner Susan Cardillo told Patch that most of the building will be leased out, although the amount is yet to be determined. Her shop will maintain a presence in part of the building, while keeping its online sales operation at starspangledcarousel.com, which has been running for about seven years.

The space is roughly 2,600, includes a vast collection on three floors and attracts shoppers from around the region, including the Chappaqua and Mount Kisco areas. Meanwhile, the website does international sales, Cardillo said.

Cardillo is an owner occupant of the building, which is at 462 Main St.

With a smaller physical footprint, the shop is currently holding a clearance sale, featuring items at 75-percent off.

Having stopped by the other day for this story, one thing that caught my eyes is that they have a large inventory.
