WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — There may be hope yet to keep open a landmark kosher market in West Hartford.

The owner of the 74-year-old Crown Market kosher grocery decided to close because of the tough economy.

Three businessmen, Henry Zachs, Alan Lazowski, Brian Newman, have come forward to say they’re working to raise money to buy the market and renegotiate the lease.

“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,” Zachs said in a statement.
