This is no surprise but seems a little sudden Chef...... Normally there would be a wicked fire sale.

I went there for the first time two weeks ago. I couldn't believe stores like that still existed. Brown mushrooms for $100? Petco has better livestock. Captive audience I guess.

There is a fortune to be made for someone running a GOOD and FUN hobbyist centric shop in the middle of LI. No one can seem to get it right.

Again, it's bad service and not catering to the customer (and apparently $100 mushroom rocks). Any more questions?

I have never been there either but always heard the prices were outrageous so I figured why waste my time? I just go out there for wal mart and the good restaurants. Cozy Mel's is the ABSOLUTE BEST. Just an all around great mexican restaurant, so authentic they got their chef straight from mexico! Prices are good,drinks are awesome. Sorry to go off topic but if anyone wants to atleast get some good food if you do decide to waste your time going to this terrible store it's behind the mall next to chile's. NO I DO NOT work for them just offering some friendly advice and it's more worth it to talk about this restaurant than this crappy store! LOL

I'm sure even if their stuff was 50% off it's still 1000% more than what it should cost or you'd be willing to pay for it anyway.

I'm pretty sure that they are a franchise outfit, so someone lost their capital.
