Discount store opens today at 47 Avenue A
In recent weeks workers have stocked the vacant storefront at 47 Avenue A between Third Street and Fourth Street (in one of the retail spaces of the Ageloff Towers) with a variety of housewares and toiletries.
One EVG reader says the shop will be called Essex 99-Cent Store and from the owners of Essex Card Shop at 39 Avenue A. (Of course, many of the items displayed in the front window look to cost a lot more than 99 cents.)
Anyway! Per the grand opening sign on the front window, the shop debuts today at 10 a.m.
For now, the name of the previous business, Avenue A Copy Center & Shipping Outlet, remains above the storefront. The Copy Center closed in late April after three-plus years in business.
