'Round The Square

Pastrami Plus

A new kosher-style deli will be opening its second location in Franklin Square.  Pastrami Plus, which has one location in East Meadow, known for its pastrami and multi-flavor knishes, will be opening their second location at 916 Hempstead Turnpike in Franklin Square.  They will be opening in early October with a limited menu of Soups, Sandwiches, and knishes, and will expand its menu with additional entrees in the future.  The restaurant will have table space for about 20 people.  The owner, Sal Gawish, decided to come to Franklin Square because there is nothing like this in the local area.

Philly Pretzel Factory

The Philly Pretzel Factory will be coming to Franklin Square at 197 Franklin Avenue!  For details about this new business, please visit their website at

Shillings Hardware Closing

Shillings True Value Hardware, located at 922 Hempstead Turnpike, will be closing at the end of September.  The owners thank everyone for their business over the many years they have been in the neighborhood.  The owners have been attempting to find a business to rent out half of the space, and make the store smaller, however, the efforts have not been successful.  They will be open through the end of September with 20-50% off their inventory.
