The Vernon Hills Shopping Center on the Scarsdale side of Eastchester, which was sold to Manhattan’s Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. in 2019 for more than $125 million, is undergoing a renaissance. Saks Off Fifth has taken over part of the former Lord & Taylor. (Saks is owned by Hudson’s Bay Co., which once owned L & T.) Nike by Scarsdale has opened in the former Brooks Brothers locale. Wine Stop & Spirits has expanded, moving to the former site of Willow Road, a young children’s gifts brand.
Amid such change and expansion at the shopping center, New York City-based Ever/Body opened in October, offering a range of cosmetic dermatology treatments in its first Westchester County locale. (It has nine locations in the East and 120 employees.)
CEO Amy Shecter’s résumé includes tenures in fashion/retail management (Liz Claiborne, DKNY, Cole Hahn, Tory Burch, C. Wonder) and in the fitness and beauty industries (CorePower Yoga, Glamsquad) before she joined Ever/Body as CEO in September 2020. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Recently, she took some time to answer our questions about the company’s venture into Westchester:
