The lease for the KMart space at the Metro Mall in Middle Village was set to expire in early 2019, but the chain announced that it would close its store there this October. This follows the closure of Toys R Us earlier this year. Those are two very big retail spaces and we hope some great anchor tenants fill them. There has also been talk of the spaces being combined and taken over by one business. Previous tenants of the space have included Robert Hall Village, Times Square Store and Caldor. What will come next? Stay tuned.
