What Do You Want to See Here? [Empty in Miller Place-Rocky Point]

A national chain is coming to half of the former Blockbuster, what would you like to see in the rest?

Whether you loved their movie selection and multiple copies or hated their late charges, Blockbuster Video is gone from Rocky Point.

The 7,000 square foot building has been empty for nearly a year, but won't be for much longer. A national chain has agreed to lease half the property and is awaiting permit approval before beginning to move in.

The other 3,500 square feet are up for grabs. Greg Carlin, who is overseeing the leasing of the building said that the asking price is $30 per foot and that they've received strong interest.

What would you like to see in the former Blockbuster building?

Would like to see a Men's only shoe store with all the top brands. Not the junk shoes that some stores sell. What chain is coming in the other half?

Agent couldn't tell what chain with a confidentiality agreement in place. Wouldn't say which chain until they get the permits approved.

a cafe, or dunkin donuts, or starbucks- drive thru something would be sooo helpful for stay at home parents!

Funny how these bigs stores(blockbuster/borders), put the privately owned stores out of buisness, only to find themselves with the same fate. It would be nice if a small, privately owned bookstore came to our area.

Panera's has been expanding rapidly and they are strangely absent from the area.

a really great, unique coffee house (not a chain)

Kara - Have you tried Beanberry in Miller Place? Might be what you're looking for
