New Business Residents Want in the Village

Each week Patch roves the village asking your neighbors, friends and local storeowners a different question.

There are  a few empty storefronts in the village that could potentially be filled with something new.

So Patch decided to find out from the experts just what new business would be warmly received by shoppers and asked residents " What new store would you like to see come to the village?"

Think about it... what do you wish was closer to home? Give us your feedback in the comments section below.

I'd like to see a "make your own jewelry" bead shop that offers a wide selection of high-quality beads, you pay only for the materials you use, and that offers classes on weekends and evenings. I went to a store like this a few weeks ago in Concord, NH and it was packed. It's a great place to spend a few hours, alone or with friend(s), express your creativity and socialize. It would also be a great venue for birthday parties and bridal parties and would probably draw customers from surrounding communities who would spend a few hours there and then, potentially, shop or visit a restaurant before leaving the village. While such a store would primarily appeal to women, the one in NH had many cool beads and materials appropriate for guys -- leather string, masculine looking beads made of wood, shells, etc. My son had a good time making a very nice necklace with a wooden tiki charm. Here's a link to the store in NH. Don't know if it's independently owned or a franchise. http://www.beadit.biz/

For fresh fruit & veggies, just go to Sherry's.

Having a farmers market in the village would be a wonderful asset. Not only would it create more neighborly ambience for 3 seasons of the year, it would also support our local Long Island Farmers and reduce emissions from truck transport of produce to parts further west. Though it's true that some local stores, such as Sherry's, Village Meat Market, Gemelli's and the local bodega provide a small sampling of fresh fruits and vegetables, it can't compare to the wide variety that farmers markets make available. As there is no store devoted to fresh fruits and vegetables in the village, and most of us need to go into one of the surrounding communities for a supermarket with a wide variety, I can't think of anything that would enhance life in the village more than a farmers market or a fresh fruit and vegetable store.
