Kids gym, print shop debut in Valley Stream
(Page 2 of 2)
Fellow Lynbrook resident with ties to Valley Stream, Les Forrai, recently moved one of his two Minuteman Press locations to Sunrise Highway. The new Valley Stream store opened on Oct. 4 and had to be closed for two weeks after Hurricane Sandy due to a lack of power. Forrai said while it was an annoyance to close down shop so soon after opening, he is counting his blessings because some of his colleagues had their locations totally wiped out.
Forrai has lived on the Lynbrook-Valley Stream border for the last eight years and said he could walk to work if he wanted. He also lived in Valley Stream for 14 years prior, and is quite familiar with the village.
He moved his store from Baldwin because he thinks Valley Stream is a better spot for his business, which is family-owned and prints signs, banners and a host of other products, and has its own bulk mailing facility. He also owns another Minuteman location in Manhasset and said he has many devoted customers.
“We have the latest high-tech equipment,” he said of his stores, “and we love to cater to people’s emergencies. If they come in here at the last minute and need 1,000 booklets, we’ll stay all night and do it.”
