Ricky's is closing on 3rd Avenue
The Ricky's location on Third Avenue between 13th Street and 14th Street is closing this month. (H/T Goggla!)
Some products at the accessories, cosmetics and novelties store are up to 90 percent off, per the sales signage.
While this location is closing, there is a Ricky's opening on Broadway next to the Strand at 12th Street...
The Ricky's on First Avenue between Sixth Street and Seventh Street closed without any notice in March 2016. The one in Chelsea on 23rd Street near Eighth Avenue closed last May while the Union Square location followed suit in November.
Ricky’s NYC president, Michael Long, told the Commercial Observer last fall that the chain is closing "underperforming stores" and that the company is now profitable.
Ricky's started as Ricky Love in 1989. Today, Ricky's has 17 locations around NYC and one in Miami. (The number was 30 at the time of the First Avenue closure.)
