BirdBrain Parrots is the latest business to be confirmed for the newly built Meadow Commons, which will also include an animal hospital and a salon.
Situated on the property that once housed the Crystalbrook catering facility, the includes seven commercial spaces that will be leased. Six of the units will be around 1,000 square feet each, with the seventh having slightly more room.
"We work with a network of private professional breeders that allows us to offer quality African greys, Macaws, Amazons, Cockatoos, Conures, Senegals and much much more," BirdBrain Parrots officials said on their website. "We will teach you how to raise your parrot and provide you with many nurturing and guidance techniques."
North Shore Animal Hospital will also rent one of the spaces, and Dr. Michael Ferber, a Merrick resident who will be the primary care physician at the new East Meadow location, said that the majority of the work will be done at the new clinic.
"We’re going to have a small facility, but we’re going to have access to the larger locations’ resources," Ferber said, specifying that he will have the Bellmore and Bayside materials at his disposal as well.
