Vacant Spaces: What Shop Would You Like to See on Main Street?

An occasional feature - as vacate spaces surface - asking what the community would like to see open in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.


In some ways this is my least favorite series — if I'm posting it, it means yet another business property is up for grabs — and in another regard, I love it. 

I love hearing from Patch readers/citizens/consumers/shoppers what you want and don't want to see open in the Villages. You asked for a bookstore, and sure enough, there are two on the way. , slated to open on April 30 on Central Avenue and perhaps in May.

Not that we make magic here, but your voice does, and should, make a difference. 

Now, what would you like to see at...

28 Main Street?

This space, formerly occuppied by the Apt. 28 boutique and then by unique clothing and accessories vendor , shuttered, seemingly overnight. It's a cute, if smallish, space, so obviously suitable to only certain types of businesses. 

We've got a new , a new and ... Doesn't Main Street just get better and better?

Weigh in here on what else you'd like, before someone snaps this place up.

I heard yesterday he rented it to an existing jewelry store that is moving down to Main St from Bway. The other contenders were a children's store or an organic clothing and accessories boutique. I did speak to the landlord about the need to put something special and different in the space to help grow Ttown as a destination for visitors and residents. We need to maintain a great combination of diverse shops, entertainment and dining to keep our downtown flourishing.

What do you think about an all natural health and beauty products shop. It would be nice to buy products you can feel good about putting on and in your body!
