An Ashley Homestore is moving into the store being vacated by Modell's Sporting Goods in Riverhead Centre. The national furniture retail store will take occupancy Feb. 1, according to the center's leasing agent.
Town Hall Notebook
The approximately 5,000-square-foot currently vacant storefront would accommodate a restaurant use with 120 to 160 seats, according to the town planning department. A town board special permit would be required, because the site, developed prior to the master plan rezoning, is located in the Destination Retail zoning district, where restaurants are not permitted.
Riverhead's newest supermarket will open its doors next summer in the former Waldbaum's location on Route 58.
