Moms Talk Q&A: Will Business Closings Change The Way You Shop?

With the recent annoucenments of several business closures in Commack, parents may have to find new places to shop.

The winter months proved to be turbulent for many local economies, but Commack businesses took an especially hard hit, as several major chain locations including , and announced they were closing.

This commercial upheaval has sparked such a reaction from the community that we decided to make it the subject of this week's Moms Talk.

Will these closures affect the way you and your family shop? Have these stores become a part of your shopping routine, and if so, where will you go once they're gone? Do these closings make you rethink your shopping habits?

These closings make me rethink my family's shopping habits. We buy so much on line, it makes me think we may have contributed to their closing. Many on line deals are too good to pass up.

Pathmark (which is owned by waldbaums (2 stores in Commack) King Kullen, Meat Farms, Shoprite, Target (2 stores) Not including smaller store like Kellys and Best Market. Do we really care if they closed. Barnes and Noble is twice the size of Borders and 1.25 miles away. Does anybody really use Video stores amymore. A bigger store would be the police blotter for Commack. In the past week I've heard of Two house break-ins in my own neighborhood. This should be announced to the residents daily.

People may shrug off local store closings but the end results do affect them. More unemployment, less tax collection and more vacent commercial buildings. This affects every homeowner as home prices decline due to these very factors. So think twice before touting off the mantra "it doesn't affect me, so who cares"
