Attias Closes But No Target Opening Date on Horizon

Sayville's flea market is relocating to Westbury.

The Attias Flea Market in Sayville has officially closed its doors to the public but there is still no official date of when the new site’s occupant, Target, will open its retail operation.

According to a management spokesperson the flea market is relocating to a Westbury location and the vendors are in process of packing and making the move this week.

One vendor, Guru's, left the market in December and re-opened on Main Street in Sayville.

“We are in the process [of closing] and the vendors are in the process [of moving] as they have a lot to move,” said the flea market spokesperson.

How long the site will remain vacant is unknown as Target “currently does not have any information to share regarding a potential new store in Sayville,” stated spokesperson Sarah Van Nevel, in an email to Patch Tuesday. In a previous email Van Nevel stated Target typically doesn't announce a new store opening until a year prior to the build launch date.

Plans to build a Target store at the corner of Sunrise Highway and Broadway Avenue were approved by the Islip Town Board in late 2012 following a public planning board hearing in October.

At the hearing several residents voiced concerns about traffic impact.

Town planning officials told Patch Tuesday the project does not require any further public hearings or discretionary town approvals and that the next phase is the building permit process.
