The Goldberg’s East End bagel empire, complete with eight stores and hundreds of sandwich options, may be at risk of losing one of its premier locations.

The building housing the bagel store at 100 Pantigo Place in East Hampton recently went on the market for just under $6 million. Another occupant, Hampton Beverage East, closed its doors on July 31 “due to owner disagreements,” according to a sign on the door.

The property in its entirety is owned by business partners Charles Hausman, William Hurley and Matthew Worrell. Mr. Worrell is also the principal owner of Hampton Beverage East.

Paul Wayne, who owns the Goldberg’s store in East Hampton, would not comment, upon the advice of his attorney.

“The building is for sale and in the hands of a court receiver,” Mr. Worrell said on Tuesday. “If [the] court receiver decides he wants him out of there, he’s gotta go.” Mr. Worrell declined to comment further, and the other partners could not be reached for comment.

Goldberg’s Bagels, which has locations as far west as Riverhead and as far east as Montauk, currently leases its space from the partners on a month-by-month basis, according to Justin Agnello, one of three real estate salespeople representing the property.

Listed at $5.99 million, the 10,856-square-foot building comes with three possible units for vendors, four half-baths, including one in each unit, and 45 parking spaces. Formerly occupied by a wine store, the third storefront is unoccupied. The property itself is 1.5 acres and zoned for neighborhood business use.

It was listed with Mr. Agnello, Hara Kang and James Keogh of Douglas Elliman a little more than two weeks ago, Mr. Agnello said. Prior to that, it had been listed by Saunders, in 2016, for $7.5 million.

Mr. Agnello said that the team has netted interest in the property from several buyers with different intentions. At least one potential buyer, he said, “wants to do something personal” with the storefronts, while others are interested in continuing a contract with Goldberg’s and other possible tenants.

A spokesperson for Douglas Elliman said Goldberg’s hopes to stay in the location.
