Does the Town Need Seasonal Businesses?

With so many vacancies, could the area benefit from seasonal pop-up stores that fill space in the summer months.

For the traveller, the Hamptons are a hotbed for seasonal businesses that cater specifically to the summer residents, out-of-towners that visit through September. 

But for other areas of Long Island, seasonal businesses are far different.

 has been a seasonal business on West Main Street in Smithtown since it opened, but Gio Chiarelli, owner of the location,.

Would the Town of Smithtown and locals benefit from having seasonal businesses? Or should the focus of occupying the vacant storefronts be strictly for permanent businesses?

Let us know in the comments.
