Family Discount Center and Ace Hardware in the Rye Ridge Shopping Center will close after the upcoming holiday season, according to the center’s leasing agent.

Win Ridge Realty LLC’s Erin Hinchey announced the closing last week, the latest shift for the shopping center in Rye Brook, which has been called by the village’s mayor a quasi-downtown.

“We know our customers enjoy the convenience of FDC and Ace Hardware and one of the things we are working towards is bringing a vibrant replacement that can make the experience even better with more merchandise, better prices and a much needed store update,” Hinchey said.

The shopping center has seen some longtime tenants leave in recent years, including Ridge Squire Tuxedos and Finch’s Drugs, which closed last year after 65 years in business. The center houses a Chipotle Mexican Grill, Starbucks and D’Agostino, among other stores.
