Vacant businesses in East Meadow these days are almost a dime a dozen; however, while most empty storefronts suggest the collapse of a once-hopeful entrepreneur, sometimes they simply represent change.
About eight months ago, Prescription Headquarters, a pharmacy located at 1854 Front St., moved the business around the corner to 196 East Meadow Ave. and changed their name to B and H Compounding Pharmacy.
Since then, their former storefront has been on the market, and Cardinal Management is the realty company that has been tasked with the job of procuring a new tenant.
Barbara, a broker with Cardinal Management, said that the space is currently applicable to any number of business types.
“The store is 1,600 square feet, and the rent is $4,500 a month and that includes taxes and everything else,” she said. “The property is a plain vanilla box, it’s wide open inside and can be easily converted into just about any set-up a business owner could need.”
However, when asked if any prospective tenants has shown any interest in the location, Barbara’s reply was, “Not at the moment.” However, she remains hopeful that she will get the space filled soon.
1854 Front St. is located in a shopping center with several other stores, including AMF East Meadow Lanes.
Parties interested in leasing the space at 1854 Front St. can call Cardinal Management at 1-800-645-3470.
