Business Beat: Cinema Razed, Vineyard Cleared, Dunk's Closed & More

Also this week, a new children's boutique opened up in Stony Brook and a Hauppauge company attended a digital summit in Woodbury.

This week, Patch reported on a variety of business developments across northern and central Suffolk County. Here are the highlights.


Port Jeff Station Dunkin' Donuts Closed For Repairs

The Dunkin' Donuts on Route 347 in Port Jefferson Station was due for some fixin' up apparently. The interior has been gutted and a sign on the window says that the business will be closed from April 7 for two weeks.

But if you're jonesing for a cup of Joe from Dunkin' Donuts, don't panic, you still have options. There is another Dunkin' Donuts down the road on Route 25A in Mt. Sinai that recently opened and another downtown in Port Jefferson on Main Street.


Hauppauge Company Joins Second Digital Summit

Long Island’s second digital summit brought more than 400 professionals Tuesday to the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.


St. James Winery Gets State License to Sell Wine

Whisper Winery still trying to work with Town of Smithtown officials for outdoor event permit; public hearing scheduled for April 25.


New Children’s Boutique Opens in Stony Brook

The idea was born from her art, inspired by her photography studio itself.

Local photographer Christina Bohn's home base for her photography is the greenhouse at The Studio on Route 25A in Stony Brook, a versatile space filled with natural light and all the artistic artifacts and details a photographer could want. Now, she has branched out and opened a children's clothing boutique at The Studio, Eloise + Oliver.


No Trace Left of Commack Cinemas

It's all just dirt and rocks now where the Commack Multiplex Cinemas stood for 30 years.

Once a vibrant, local attraction, the movie theater is now completely gone to make room for a Lowe's Home Improvement store.
