SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Many merchants in Sheepshead Bay say that they are struggling after Hurricane Sandy, even though the storm came ashore more than seven weeks ago.

Businesses say that foot traffic has dropped off because residents are still working on home repairs, instead of holiday shopping.

Some store owners say that if sales don’t start to improve soon, they’ll be forced to close their doors for good.
