New tenant for 37 St. Mark's Place — REVEALED

The signage arrived yesterday for the next tenant at 37 St. Mark's Place (aka 133 Second Ave.) — Shibuyala, which sells beauty and health-care products from Japan. (Thanks to Steven for these photos!)

Shibuyala arrived in the United States in 2016, and now has stores in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Houston with 50 more outposts expected to open worldwide by 2022, per its website.

We were just talking about 37 St. Mark's Place on Wednesday. Workers have been gutting the space, which has been tenant-free since the 7-Eleven closed in November 2013. (Also, I predicted a dessert place for the space. 0-1 in 2019!)

No word on an opening date. The space is still in the gut-renovation stage.

Here's what to expect inside the shop once it opens, via this Japanese promo clip on the Shibuyala website...

It's adorable and perfect for that stretch of St. Marks. I predict it will do very well.

In other words, it’s Japanese Ricky’s.

Phew. At first glance at the signage it sure looks like a dessert place. I nearly slammed my laptop shut in disgust.
