Bleecker Bob's was priced out of its longtime home on West Third Street this past year, closing for good in April.
And, as you may recall, a Forever Yogurt franchise was set to take over the space, even sporting an oh-so-cutesy record logo on the front door during the summer.
Apparently there won't be FroYo here, at least according to a Facebook update today from Bleecker Bob's:
today we give a big FUCK YOU to the assholes at Forever Yogurt who closed down a 45 year old landmark record store to build a bullshit froyo shop and now pulled out of the lease!!!
the storefront at 118 west 3rd is now for rent.
Last that we saw, the space for going for $17,000 a month. (Alex has a photo of the rather homemade "for rent" sign here.)
