Bayside has one less convenience store as of this weekend.

The Bay Village Mini Mart convenience store — located at 205-11 35th Ave. and known simply to residents as the “Mini Mart” — served customers for the final time on Sunday, Jan. 22.

 

In the days leading up to its closure, owners were offering much of its stock at discounted prices. Residents who asked management why the store was closing were told that owners could no longer afford to pay the rent.

Mini Mart — situated between Robert’s Butcher Shop and Luigi’s Pizzeria — was one in a string of small businesses along 35th Avenue between 205th Street and the Clearview Expressway service road. A convenience store assumed the space for decades, though run by different management over the years.

Two other Bayside businesses have recently announced they would be closing for good. Party City, owned and operated by Douglaston residents who cited high rent and parking competition at the location as concerns, closed earlier this month. The Dinette & Furniture Center also announced it will shut down at the end of the month after 40 years of business.
