For the time being, Ray's Candy Store will no longer be open 24/7
As previously noted, Ray Alvarez, the 82-year-old proprietor of Ray's Candy Store at 113 Avenue A, had heart valve replacement surgery earlier this summer.
While Ray is back and doing well by all accounts...
... EVG reader and Ray's regular Peter Brownscombe passes along word that Ray has decided to downsize his operation, and cut back his hours and staffing. For the foreseeable future, he will keep his shop open near East Seventh Street from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily...

The problem is that just about EVERYone working at Ray's STEALS from him. This includes the man and woman (husband + wife?) who took over while Ray was hospitalized,rudely shooing away those asking about Ray.....
Do what you gotta do, brother. Be ssein' you soon. Love ya!
ew! that's horrible! how do you know they steal from him? can we do something? buy him surveillance cameras?
I love it that even though he's cutting back his hours, they are still true to the spirit of the neighborhood. No need to open in the morning. And keep it open late!
I passed by there last night, and that sign was gone. Maybe it was temporary?
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! that said, i'll take any hours ray cares to offer! DON'T STEAL FROM RAY! who would do such a thing?
Anonymous 10:12, There's no proof that anyone is stealing from Ray.
Maybe you should ask Ray...
