East Village Tobacco & Variety Shop is closing after 6 months on East 9th Street
[Photo Friday by Steven]
After less than 6 months in business, the East Village Tobacco & Variety Shop is closing this week here at 350 E. Ninth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue. As the sign shows, there is a going-out-of-business sale.
The store sells some standard deli fare (sodas, water, cigarettes, etc.) and a few seemingly random items such as children's clothing and perfume.
The space was previously home to A.K. Shoe Repair, which closed last August. The proprietor said that he was no longer able to sustain the business after his landlord raised the rent from $2k to $4.5k a month.

Another juice bar? Acai in a hoof?
Will storefront ever be rented by non-alcohol serving businesses again in the EV? No small business can survive which provides services and products which we actually use and need due to insane rents.
Was this a pop-up purveyor of random goods? I don't understand what their business model was, or how they expected to pay any rent. God speed.
Vape nation, y'all!
They had a lease that lasted less than 6 months? That doesn't make sense.
Aw crap, where will I get my tobacco and variety goods now?
Lady Kim is coming will be a nail bar
