When Kathy Fahy visited Port Jefferson from upstate New York for the first time this spring, a friend introduced her to on East Main Street and she fell in love with the Christmas shop.
“I am a bit of a Christmas goonie,” Fahy said.
The women who ran The Red Sled told her that the store was closing because the owner was retiring but Fahy had other plans.
“I decided that while the owner would prefer to close and retire, the iconic spirit and passion of Christmas embodied in ‘The Red Sled’ needed to continue in Port Jefferson,” she said.
With the help of the store employees, Margot Garant’s law office and moral support from her friends, Fahy was able to buy the shop and reopen just in time for the season.
