Grand Openings for 2 Businesses in Huntington

Huntington Town Supervisor Ed Smyth greeted at 7-Eleven.


A much larger 7-Eleven with more services and a redesigned Retro Fitness celebrated with grand openings this week.

The 7-Eleven at 336 East Jericho Turnpike opened in Februrary but moved its ribbon cutting to March,  hoping for good weather for the event.  Thursday’s rain kept most of the ceremony indoors but didn’t prevent a large turnout of  corporate representatives,  government officials and others who turned out to welcome Kathirvel Raveendran to his new location.The owner moved his previous 7-Eleven store, which he operated for 25 year, from across the street, with a larger building and multiple gas pumps.

Town Supervisor Ed Smyth spoke at the ceremony, and Karen Klafter, chief of staff to Suffolk County Legislator Tom Donnelly presented Raveendran with a proclamation.

Retro Fitness showed off its remodeled center at 1960 Jericho Turnpike, Elwood, on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting, face painting, a DJ and giveaways.
