WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ Less than a week after it announced it was closing after 74 years, the kosher Crown Market in West Hartford may have a second life.

A statement released on its Website Monday night said that a group of community leaders, led by Henry M. Zachs, Alan Lazowski and Brian Newman are attempting to raise money to buy The Crown Market and ensure it stays open without interruption.

The group is working on raising the money needed to keep the doors open, at the same time, they would renegotiate the lease and look to modernize the facility putting the market on “strong financial footing.”

“We are blessed to have a community that cares so deeply about saving this precious asset, as well as saving valuable jobs,” Zachs said. “We are honored to be part of this local community-wide effort, all working together toward the common goal of ensuring that The Crown Market, a fixture in West Hartford for nearly a century, can continue to thrive for future generations.”
