Closing Waldbaum's in Huntington Station?

I'm hearing rumors that the Waldbaum's on Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station is under threat of closing. Sales aren't what the HQ wants; too many small purchases, not enough sales of substance. The story is that a Hispanic-themed supermarket wants to take over the space. This won't go over well. The competition presented by the overpriced Stop&Shop may have proven to be too much. It would seem to be a decent enough location, with several other viable stores in the same center. I'm looking forward to hearing more. Previously reviewed, including a mention of an increase in Hispanic products.
