Container Store Signs on for Second Long Island Location

The Container Store will join REI and Whole Foods Market at Federal Realty Investment Trust’s Huntington Shopping Center in Huntington Station, NY as part of its $75M redevelopment. Additionally, Burger Village, Love Sac and Just Salad have signed leases for the center’s new pad site facing Route 110.   

The new 15,676-square-foot Container Store will be located adjacent to Whole Foods Market and will be the brand’s second location to open on Long Island. Burger Village is leasing 2,756 square feet, Love Sac will open a 1,412-square-foot showroom and Just Salad will occupy 2,382 square feet. 

“The transformation of Huntington Shopping Center continues to draw premier brands that, together, create a must-visit retail destination,” said Mark Brennan, VP of regional development at Federal Realty. “With the addition of some of the region’s most desirable retail, food & beverage concepts, we believe the property will deliver what the community needs and wants.”
