Business Beat: Shoes, Apartments, Groceries and a Safe Way to Throw Away E-Waste

A collection of this week's news and notes from around Babylon's downtown.

Good news for shoppers who love shoes, a sign in the window of the recently closed Love My Shoes indicates that a new shoe store will soon open: Shoes I Love. There is no opening date yet for the similarly named yet new store, but the Love My Shoes Facebook page states that the entire chain of stores was purchased by a new owner who will reopen all the current locations.

The restaurant formerly known as Bistro 111 may have a new incarnation soon: an alcohol permit was just filed for the 111 Deer Park Avenue address by a newly formed LLC called The Hrisho Group, based in Holbrook. Patch will update when more information becomes available.

A new grocery store has opened on Great East Neck Road in West Babylon. After almost a year of a "coming soon" sign the Great East Neck Farmer's Market opened last week. The discount grocery store was advertising low prices on staple items.

Some Babylon Village apartments are getting an upgrade: the brick multi-building apartment complex at 39-59 Park Avenue has been bought by Fairfield Properties. The buildings, now known as "Fairfield Townhouses at Babylon Village" are getting new siding and interior renovations.

Staples in West Babylon is now offering daily free electronic recycling. The service counter will accept all types and brands of computers, monitors, printers, keyboard, shredders, phones, cameras and music players. Technology recycling is a safe way to dispose of used electronics, which are environmentally hazardous when dumped. E-recycling also helps protect your secure information.

The controversial strip club on Sunrise Highway in West Babylon, L.I. Cafe, is displaying a new sign: Wing House. An employee told Patch that the new establishment was still owned by the same owner. Although below the new sign, a Long Island Cafe sign was still visible. The strip club operations were shut down by the Town of Babylon in the fall of 2010.

Kilwins Chocolates opened this past weekend. Patch will run an interview with the owner tomorrow.
