Katzenberg's in the Golden Horseshoe Shopping Center in Scarsdale is closed again. A Scarsdale10583 reader reports that the salad bar closed overnight and failed to inform their employees who waited outside the following morning. The employees came to work one morning ready to work but found the store shut. This is the third time that Katzenberg's closed suddenly. Though there was initially a sign that said "Closed for Renovation" on the door it did not appear that renovations were in process and the sign on the door is now gone.

An organic salad bar, wholesome to-go meals and beverage bar serving Fair Trade coffee and organic juices will make this new Mrs. Green's Natural Market a popular spot for health conscious customers.
Mrs. Green's was founded in 1991 with the mission to provide organic and natural products.
