Sixth Avenue Electronics Spot Unplugged [Empty in Lake Grove]

Prominent shopping center at Route 347 and Route 25 intersection is two-third vacant after the electronics store closed.

The Smith Haven Mall has grown by leaps and bounds over the years with the addition of the Lifestyle Village and Barnes & Noble. It seems there's not enough room for businesses looking to move into Lake Grove.

Except there's a strip small on Route 347 and Route 25A, within a five-minute drive of Smith Haven, that's mostly empty.

The Sixth Avenue Electronics shopping enter is two-thirds empty after the e. The national chain shutdown all three of its remaining stores to help bring its outstanding debt under control.

The closure of Sixth Avenue Electronics left a gaping hole, a retail space of more than 30,000-square-feet, in the Route 347 strip mall. The adjacent 14,000-square-foot storefront is also vacant. It's turned the strip mall into a ghost of its former self.

Breslin Realty, who has listed the space for rent, claims the strip mall is passed by 59,000 vehicles per day and has more than 225,000 residents who live within a five-mile radius. Breslin is asked for $27 per square foot to lease the space, according to Loopnet.

Did you shop here when it was Sixth Avenue Electronics? What business would you like to see take over its former storefront and anchor the strip mall?

I think given the high rents of stores it would be great to turn this building (and one next door) into many kiosks under one roof. That would give small entrepreneurs a chance at running a small business while sharing the costs with other likeminded people.

A supermarket would be ideal. Living in Nesconset, our closest supermarket is Waldbaums - even though it is relatively close in mileage, the path to get there is always busy. Super Stop and Shop?
