Mandee in Final Days in Smithtown

Signs posted at the store say retailer will close up shop on Main Street.

If you're looking for discounted women's fashions, you've got four days left to get shopping on Main Street.

Chain retailer Mandee is in the final four days of its closing sale, according to signs posted on the store. And it's not only clothes that must go, signs claim store fixtures are also up for sale.

The closing of the store will leave a another big hole on Smithtown's Main Street. Since Smithtown Hardware abandoned the building last spring, after Mandee leaves.

The Smithtown shop isn't the only nearby Mandee to shutter. Employees at the Commack location as well.

Recent reports claim Mandee corporate parent Big M is preparing to declare bankruptcy, a move that could mean store closings across the county. However the company, which is privately held, has not confirmed reports.

I am sad to see Mandee's close down. It was nice to shop there as the employee's were always very helpful and nice. I hope the employee's will be able to find other employment.

We really need a general clothing store on Main Street. First JC Penney left (yes, I am dating myself) Then Daffy's left, now Mandee's. We could use a Fashion Bug or something like a Sweezy's- type of store. Many people would prefer not to go through the hassel of the mall for a few items.

I agree, there is a need for some kind of clothing store. I used to go to penneys all the time when I didn't want to deal w / the mall hassle and was sad to see it go. Mandees was in a bad location. I forgot it was there. Daffys wasnt really the answer either. They didn't really have "something for everyone". That's the kind of store we need. Not sure what Brand of store would do well but we need one that has something for men, women, teens and kids as well as some housewares stuff. Hmmmmmm maybe Marshall's!!!! That would be cool!

Originally, Old Navy was supposed to take Daffys spot before sleepys moved in. That would've been great.
