Basics Plus is now open on 3rd Avenue

The windows at Basics Plus at 91 Third Avenue are filled with oven mitts, household cleaners and power drills!

The housewares store with several NYC locations opened Friday here on the northeast corner of 12th Street. They took over the space last held by Surprise! Surprise!, which closed after 25 years in business on April 27.

The one thing I didn't like about Surprise Surprise was always having to check my bag at the counter. It was so annoying, and I sometimes got stuck behind paying customers waiting to get my stuff back. Welcome to Basics Plus. I plan to check out the store soon.
