The Shoppes at East Wind, decked out with wreaths, garland and lights, is celebrating its first holiday shopping season with a nearly full complement of shops and eateries.
And if you stop by the Shoppes at East Wind in Wading River on or before Dec. 19 your children can drop their letters in the “Letters to Santa Mailbox” at the shoppes entrance. Santa will even write back, if a return address is included on the envelope.
When Miguel Vergara was a child in Puerto Rico, he used to sneak Chick-O-Sticks from his grandfather’s grocery store.
Now, the Wading River resident sells Chick-O-Sticks, a honeycombed candy filled with peanut butter and rolled in toasted coconut, at his own store, Sweet Cart Candy Shoppe, which recently opened in The Shoppes at East Wind.
