BLOG: We Need a Grocery Store on Main Street

Town Planners and Realtors please consider bringing a small grocery store to the empty storefront property just west of Chase Bank!

Would it be possible to bring a small grocery store preferably a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, or even a local IGA to the King Kullen site on Main Street, most recently Mandees and Tru Value Hardware? 

Back in the day we had Blue Jays, Bohack and A&P on Main Street.  Later on we had Grand Union and Waldbaums.  This to me is a problem as we sorely lack a decent grocery store on Main Street.  Could the powers that be look into bringing this to pass?

SMITHTOWN'S COMMERCIAL TAXES, ALONG WITH L.I.P.A., & NAT GRID EXPENSES. ARE DRIVING BUSINESSES OUT OF BUSINESS....NOT TO MENTION MANY OTHER RED TAPE NIGHTMARES....IT'S JUST NOT WORTH IT

I still think a Trader Joes would kick butt and be very sucessful in that location. Would thrive in a town like ours! Also it would revitalize that western end of main street that is starting to look seedy.

Stop and Shop or Trader Joe's would be great. It would be so convenient to have a place to pick up essentials on your way home from the train station.

Stop and Shop is about a mile west ,never busy,.. Smithtown is a good place for an organic food store, which Trader Joe's is not. I lean more towards Wild by Nature. But Woody is correct with his post .
