Reader report: Basics Plus moving into the former Surprise! Surprise! space
Not much has happened at the former Surprise! Surprise! space since the housewares store closed after 25 years in business on April 27.
Where are the "for lease" signs?
Well, perhaps there's already a new tenant lined up. An EVG reader passes along the following tip … a worker at the empty storefront on the northeast corner of Third Avenue and East 12th Street said that a Basics Plus will be moving in soon.
So, more housewares and and hardware-type items — much like what Surprise! Surprise! sold.
There is a Basics Plus just up the Avenue between East 17th Street and East 18th Street… no word if they are relocating or opening another location (there are three total now in the City).
