North Fork bagel lovers, rejoice: Goldberg’s Famous Bagels is coming soon to Mattituck Plaza on Main Road.
The store will move into the space formerly occupied by North Fork Bagel Co., which shut down in July after it was issued a stop-work order by the state for reportedly failing to secure Workers’ Compensation coverage.
A representative for Goldberg’s Famous Bagels could not immediately be reached for comment. The company currently has 11 stores in New Jersey, as well as one store each in Southampton, East Hampton and Montauk.
Last month, it was announced that Goldberg’s Famous Bagels would also be a tenant in the former Woolworth building on East Main Street in downtown Riverhead. That location is slated to open in January, said Barry Brown, an applicant for the proposed Riverhead store.
The proposed Goldberg’s in Riverhead will have 16 seats, three employees and be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mr. Brown said. The bagels will be made on site.
