Last month Amy Berman and Julie Wiesen, the
mother-and-daughter owners of BeWies Holistic Market in Armonk, closed the
store they opened together in 2013. While Berman is retiring, Wiesen plans to
launch a new, more “pandemic-friendly” business soon.
“Business changed so much during the pandemic that we
didn’t see the (original) store aligning with our initial ideas and goals as a
result,” Wiesen says.
While her plans for the future store aren’t solidified,
Wiesen says it will continue to offer customer favorites like granola bars,
breakfast cookies, soups, salad dressings and sweet potato slices, as well as
some newly developed items that are in the works.
“The idea of a CSA/food share co-op is being tossed
around as well, with these items being included in the weekly boxes,” she says.

“We are immensely grateful to all our customers and
friends we have met over the years who challenged us to increase our offerings
and made all the hard work worth it,” Wiesen says. “We did it for you guys, and
you all made it worth it. We are incredibly excited for this next chapter
in the story of BeWies and look forward to serving an even larger customer
