Imperial Sales plans $21M move from Bethpage to Melville for expansion of appliance sales

A small wholesaler of brand-name appliances in Bethpage wants to move back to Suffolk County, where it started 35 years ago, instead of to New Jersey, executives said.

Imperial Sales hopes to purchase an office and warehouse at 135 Baylis Rd. in Melville for $20 million. The 91,430-square-foot building had been home to beverage seller Keurig Dr Pepper until it moved to a newly constructed warehouse next door.

Imperial has been renting an office and warehouse at 999 South Oyster Bay Rd. for more than a decade. The property was once home to Grumman Corp. and was redeveloped into the Bethpage Business Park by the real estate firm Steel Equities with 40 years of tax breaks from the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency.
