Aldi, the discount grocery chain, will move into the space now occupied by Barnes & Noble in East Northport, sending the bookstore in search of a new location.
The bookstore told Newsday that it wasn’t closing but plans to move into another space. The company said it was closing because it had lost its lease as the Huntington Square shopping center redevelops.
Aldi’s relocation to the Huntington Square center at 4000 East Jericho Turnpike will place it a parking lot away from the Stop&Shop.
The shopping center is operated by Federal Realty, which has properties in 12 states and Washington, DC., including the Melville Mall and the Huntington Shopping Center.
