Visions for Vacancies: Coming Home to Country

Patch asks residents what type of business would be a good fit for this vacant storefront on Main Street, Sayville.

of Sayville went out of business nearly three months ago, but its presence remains, the sign still up at its 23 Main St. location.

The store was operated by several different owners throughout the years, but the last few months proved difficult for the most recent owners, who were unsuccessful in turning the space into a yogurt shop, according to Century 21 realtor Sue Byrnes.

As only one of several vacant storefronts in the downtown Sayville area, Patch would like to know what our readers envision for the space once occupied by Coming Home to Country.

So tell us, what vision do you have for this vacant space up for rent- a spa, restaurant, or speciality store? Let us know what you think in the comments.

For more information, call realtor Sue Byrnes at (631) 806-7456.

We have one of the best music departments on Long Island but no music store. A music store right here in Sayville would be great.

A family deli would be awesome. Paul's Deli I believe was the business at this very same location back in the 60s and 70s. I'd prefer to see a deli similar to Paul's open up.

What about a wine bar? There's one in Northport and it's always packed.

Anything but another blasted BANK! How many do we need when no one has any cash. Okay, that was a rant. What I would love to see in many towns acorss the country is a "Made In USA" store. There is one WAAY upstate that only sells good manufactured in the USA. More a "general store" or an old fashioned 5&10 where there is a multitude of products, but all goods are made here. Pipe dream I know.

It would be great to have one of those old nickel and dime stores or a nice quality thrift store.. but not antiques as we have very lovely antiques places already... a good fish market would be great too .. like Bayport's Fish Store..

We could use a red mango yogurt store. A healthy option to ice cream. They do great in their other small town locations..

We make everything here at our studio that we have for sale in the front gift shop/gallery section of our store! There are a few items we get from other artists in the USA (like glass blowers) but besides that.... all hand made in Bayport by the two people you meet behind the counter!! Stop in!!

I remember Pauls Deli as far back as the 60's. They had the best roast beef sandwiches! Would love to see a deli like that come back again.

I think a Spanish tapas restaurant or a wine and cheese bar would be wonderful addition to the town.
