In June, I spotted a retail listing for Steve's on the Bowery ... Agents remarked how this was a "prime retail location on the Bowery."
At the time, a worker at Steve's said that they'd be open through the end of this year.
Looks like they didn't make it until October. The rather grubby deli apparently closed yesterday, and workers were gutting the space this morning...
In August, BoweryBoogie had the scoop that the Intermix brand was taking over the Steve's space. The company describes itself as a "fashion boutique for trendsetters, A-Listers and glam fashionistas. We carry an exclusive mix of the best designers, styles and trends."
Curious what role the 7-Eleven across the street played in closing Steve's. The Bowery 7-Eleven opened on Dec. 23. Of course, the landlord knew that he or she could get a lot more $$$ from a big brand like Intermix than a store where single cans of beer in a bag were the hot sales item.
And a shot of Steve's with the gate down on Christmas morning, 2011...
