East Village Cheese makes move to 7th Street official
As we reported on May 27, East Village Cheese was going to relocate this summer to East Seventh Street.
There's now a sign up at the shop at 40 Third Ave. between East Ninth Street and East 10th Street with a few more details on the relocation…
Their current lease expires at the end of July. In January, we heard that the Duane Reade on Third Avenue at East 10th Street was going to expand into adjacent storefronts on that block, forcing out several businesses, including East Village Cheese and Excel Custom Framing. (Excel has found a new home on Third Avenue, which we will write about in a separate post.)
The Cheese shop owners had considered a move to Avenue A and East 13th Street, though that plan never materialized.
The new East Village Cheese will be at 80 East Seventh St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue, which was the former home of Warwick and Framus Custom Shop.
