Seasons, the supermarket chain that declared bankruptcy, relaunching under new ownership

February 1, 2019 from the JTA and Voisizneias:

"Seasons, the kosher supermarket chain that declared bankruptcy last year, has new owners and is reopening one of its closed locations."
"Seasons is under the ownership of the family of businessman Joseph Bistritzky, CEO of the Maramont Corp., a food services company."
"The Scarsdale location will be one of six stores to open, but the chain wants to make sure it can succeed in and around New York City, so national ambitions are on hold. The Upper West Side Seasons also will remain closed. In addition to Scarsdale and Queens, Seasons will continue operating stores in two New Jersey locations, Clifton and Lakewood, and two others in Lawrence in the heavily Jewish Five Towns area of suburban Long Island, New York."
