It seems as though the real estate market is not the only thing hot in Manhasset. A number of new stores are popping up throughout the community making Manhasset the go-to location for business. On Plandome Road, facades are being renovated to add a fresh new look. The change is updating the appearance of the existing storefronts and causing the opening of new businesses. The exterior facade of Vincents Cleaners, Tony’s Shoe Repair and Manhasset Hair Stylists are brand new both front and back. The renovation beckons customers to come in to shop on a new trendy main street.
Last week a new tenant moved into the space that adorns the renovated new storefront called ivivva. ivivva is a new store from lululemon featuring clothing for young girls age 4 to 14. And the trend continues. Just this weekend, two new businesses, Adelina Boutique and Barrel Grapes, and new members of the Manhasset Chamber of Commerce opened their doors here. They held grand opening events on Friday and Saturday night.
