Readers Offer Up Ideas for Stadtmuller Location

In two weeks the historic Sayville jeweler will close its doors forever.

The news F. Stadtmuller Jewelers in Sayville will close March 16 brought reactions of surprise and sadness frpm many Patch readers with several reminiscing about sentimental jewelery and gifts bought over the decades at the Main Street retailer.

The store, which has been in business for 156 years, will leave a gaping vacany in the downtown shopping district so Patch asked readers for their ideas about what new store should move in.

The first idea, supported by Josephine and Judy, was a Trader Joe's, a retailer that does not have a location in the Blue Point to West Sayville area.

Steve suggested another jewelery store after noting the closing was a an unwelcome event.

"So sad to see this close down. It's been there since I was a little boy," he wrote.

Diana isn't sure what should move in but she's very clear on what shouldn't:

"Anything but a bank.... Maybe a red mango!," she commented.

A "really great BBQ place like Smokin' Al's," was offered up by Judy Smith-Smith, while Nancy Pierson suggested a clothing store like Ann Taylor Loft or The Gap.

Eliza Kay likes those latter ideas and has a few other potentials in mind.

"I go for stores like AT, Gap or the like. No more eateries. I miss the artisan stores that were plentiful in Sayville just 10 years ago, but couldn't make the rent. No more pharms, banks, credit unions, etc. Something with class (not more junk) with moderate prices.......and gluten-free!," she wrote.

Reader Jim humorously noted what he doesn't want to see move into the site.

"Hair salon," he initially wrote.

When a reader replied there was already a great salon in Sayville, Jim quickly responded to clarify his answer.

"Hair Salon comment was meant to be a joke, there seem to be about 20 in a 2 mile radius."

Retail for sure. It will be sad seeing it go. I knew the fam; they are to this day fantastic people. Im sure the decision didn't come easy. I go for stores like AT, gap or the like. No more eateries. I miss the artisan stores that were plentiful in sayville just 10 years ago, but couldn't make the rent. No more pharms, banks, credit unions, etc. Something with class (not more junk) with moderate prices.......and gluten-free! :)

There isn't enough room for it to be a Trader Joes. I wish one would open on the south shore though-- hate going up by the mall to go there. A few jewelry shops just opened in Sayville after the Flea Market closed. I say keep it local and no Gap or anything like that.

a quality music/instrument store!

I know the cheese shop in West Sayville is looking for a bigger location. I would hate to see her move out of the area.

I would love to see a store like the Vermont Country Store... Those type of stores are great for tourism and offer cool items that you wont find in a mall. Its a Perfect size...
