Electricity price could shut down local grocery store

Greenwich's grocery store could close down if the owner and the village can't agree on a price for electricity.

Rick Patel has owned and operated Greenwich Grocery at 30 Main St. for the last year and a half. "This is too much money to charge me. I will have to shut down," Patel said.

Since opening the store, his electric bill has averaged more than $2,000 expect once, when it was about $1,400, he said.

This month, Patel's bill is $2,604, according to documents he provided at a regular council meeting Tuesday evening.
