About 18 months after first hearing that the Duane Reade on Third Avenue and East 10th Street would be expanding into the two adjacent storefronts... we finally got our first look at the expanded space...
Looks pretty Duane Reade-y.
No word on when the work on the new, longer drug store will be ready for Duane Reade-ing.
The two previous businesses that were Duane Reade-d here between Ninth Street and 10th Street are in new locations — Excel Art and Framing Store on Third Avenue and East Village Cheese on Seventh Street.
The large Duane Reade will be a welcome addition in this area so underserved by retail pharmacy chains. (KIDDING.)
