Gabay's Outlet settling into new Avenue A home
After 45 years at 225 First Ave., Gabay's Outlet moved earlier this month to 195 Avenue A near East 12th Street.
We checked in with proprietor Joey Gabay, the third generation of the family to run the business, to see how they were settling in their new home.
"We are still in liquidation mode of all of our excess inventory," said Gabay, noting that they are selling designer items at $10 a hanger. "Once the store is empty we will renovate to make a great designer boutique outlet. We are really looking forward to the fall when we will be able to put our best foot forward."
Gabay's first opened in the neighborhood at 1 St. Mark's Place in 1940. Increased rents forced them to move away from First Avenue.
As Gabay told us last month: "We are thrilled that we are staying in the East Village."
