What Kind of Store Does Huntington Station Need?

Some changes are already happening but what kind of retail does the area need?

With a organized to oppose a request for another such store, the going upscale and looking at the old Huntington Townhouse site for a store, we wonder:

What kind of retail establishment should be encouraged for Huntington Station or nearby neighborhoods? Or other kind of business? What would you like to see developed here?

Please tell us in the comments.

We need a toy store. Getting rid of Toys R Us has left a large gap, as well as getting rid of Barnes and Nobel, when it comes to getting a birthday gift for a child.

Affordable stores please! Target is good, but I would like to see a Forever 21 and other similar stores in the mall instead of all these expensive places I could never shop at.

Yes, I miss Barnes and Noble :(
Kristine McNally August 16, 2012 at 03:31 AM
Agreed.

Agreed, Barnes & Noble needs to come back. Stores aimed at area residents instead of catering to this mystical upscale.

An Aldi would be great. Drove to smith haven today and the price difference for bAsic groceries was fantastic .

Trader Joes, Meat Farms, Uncle Guiseppe's and a decent pizza place please!
Lauren La Franca August 16, 2012 at 01:58 PM
Walmart, or I definitely second an Uncle Giuseppe's!

I wonder who, in such a terrible economy they think is going to spend money in all these upscale stores. Between the cost of living and maintaining a home on long island, and food and gas prices always on the rise, who has all this spare cash to parade around in $100 jeans and $200 shoes?? I agree we could use a toy store and and a good bookstore! With all these iPads, iPhones.. ithis and ithat, my kids aren't going to know how to read a real book or play with a real toy! Let the Range Rover/Porsche/Mercedes crowd head down to the Woodbury Commons for their over priced "must show off" items. Huntington could use real stores for real people.

FIRST choice: TOYS-R-US SECOND choice: COSTCO/BJs THIRD choice: BIG-LOTS!

Toys 'r Us, Burlington Coat Factory Century 21 Uncle Guiseppe's

While Barnes & Nobel was nice Book Revue is my bookstore of choice!

Agreed! I found a great pizza place in Huntington Station, though - DaVinci's on Depot Road next to 7-11.

Bring TOYS R US back!! PLEASE!!! (Updated, of course) I also miss a good book store as well. Whole Foods Market, Fairway or Trader Joe's (store with a big selection of reasonably priced natural and organic foods). I'd like to check out a Burlington or Century 21 too. Christmas Tree Shoppe or Home Goods would be awesome too. I agree - more stores that give a greater value for your dollar are needed in this area...not these upscale unattainable stores coming to the mall.
