Weight Watchers has moved into temporary digs in an empty space on East Main Street, next door to Riverhead Diner & Grill, while it waits for paperwork on a permanent location in downtown Riverhead to finalize.
“We’re looking to settle in somewhere down here,” said Lucia Ferraro, the weight loss company’s Eastern Suffolk County territory manager. The company relocated Wednesday to downtown Riverhead from its previous location on Route 58 in the former Walmart shopping center, she said.
She said Weight Watchers plans to operate from its new location for the next few months, until a lease in an undisclosed space elsewhere on East Main Street is finalized.
In the meantime, Ms. Ferraro said, Weight Watchers is happy to be downtown.
“We wanted to support the community with our services and we see [downtown Riverhead] is starting to grow and develop into someplace with a nice, homey feel,” she said.
