No Cars Using This Drive Thru [Empty in Smithtown]

Business owners in the shopping center say the storefront was a former bank drive thru.

While the shopping center that is the home to  on Route 111 is thriving with business, one unique empty storefront in the center stands out – the small, stand-alone building that flanks the other stores.

Business owners in the center said the stand-alone building was the former home to a bank catering to drive thru clientele. 

John Surett, owner of , said he remembers the bank closing about seven or eight years ago and believes it was an extension of the Apple Bank for Savings location that is still currently open in the center.

If you drive past the gated storefront now, what once had cars passing through it has been replaced by parking for shoppers and workers at other stores in the center.

There is no sale, rental or lease information available for the building on the MLSLI.com commercial property website, but the storefront is adorned with signs with phone numbers for anyone interested in the property.

I think they need to either give the bay to letting Uncle G's vans park there or just demolish it. We have too many banks in Smithtown to even think another one will move in there. UNLESS. BOA opens up another teller on that end as well.

That was the drive up window for Apple Savings Bank for yrs . It was closed because of safety issues . Understandable .

I agree with little Shamrock's ideas. Either let G's use it , or demolish it..

I can't see any business going in this space. It would be a good idea to just demolish it.
