Whole Foods would be nice, but I'd rather an Uncle Giuseppe's or Fairway Market. If it was Dave & Buster's I'd go broke from my kids. Too small for Target/Walmart. Do we really need anther hotel in RVC?

Andrew I agree........we have bookoo typical supermarkets in the area. A specialty one would benefit the village. Uncle Guiseppiis could provide fine Italian specialties more reasonably priced than the specialtiy delis in the area.

I would like to see a movie theater. If the area is zoned strictly for "food" then I would love to see a Fairways market.

The last thing we need is another ITALIAN supermarket!Its too bad we cannot get super market chain like "Giant" to come to Ny . It seems that the out of state chains wont dare venture into the NY market but if they did you would find excellent prices , innovative marketing , Clean locations and mnost important , intelligent , well mannered helpful workers who dont ask "what You again" when you enter the store as a customer. .Ahhhhhhhhhh and they would speak english!

Where is there an Italian Supermarket in this area beside the super expensive specialty delis? You couldn't get a cleaner establishment? As far as the manners and language............maybe you'd prefer programmed Robots serving you?

Movie theaters soon to be history. Those operating now are in dire straits. A BALLYS SUPER EXPANSION, catering to all age groups would probably do fine particularly as baby boomers age. Whatever does MOVE IN, the landlord needs to be more proactive in lighting and maintenance of the property. Entering this facility is not only dingy and a mess, after a rainfall there's over a foot of water ofF Ocean ave.

Jason- i agree with you - with netflix,blockbuster,red box,pay per view tv,movies on demand,etc movie theaters are not a growth industry. Giant is owned by Ahould- the same company that owns Stop&Shop. Supermarkets like hannafords ,shaws ,wegman,etc wont come to long island because of the high operating costs. Lets try to see if Fairway or Stew Leonards would be interested in the site.
Jason January 14, 2012 at 05:55 PM
That would be great.........Now it's up to the village to deal with the particulars to make it attractive. I am not optimistic bout that part of the equation? The landlord too seems laxidasical as this property lacks attractiveness.

Maybe a CVS?

Old Navy
Jason January 25, 2012 at 11:38 PM

Jason January 25, 2012 at 11:38 PM

fresh vegatable store with a lot of local produce supermarkets have very poor fruit and veggies.

Would love to see a Best Yet replace Waldbaum's. The one in Franklin Square has nice produce, meats and fish with a good turnover and reasonably priced.
Ann March 11, 2012 at 01:59 AM
a "clean" supermarket!!! That Walbaum's should have been closed years ago from the board of health. It was disgusting. A nice, new, clean supermarket would be nice. And I agree, they need to clean up the pot hole ridden parking lot. Its been nothing but an eyesore.
