Land of Buddha, a Himalayan gift shop, taking over the former St. Mark's Comics

Signage for Little Buddha, a Himalayan gift shop, arrived yesterday at 11 St. Mark's Place.

No word yet on an opening date. Workers had been spotted renovating the space in recent months.

St. Mark's Comics closed its doors here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue after 36 years in business back in February.

Owner Mitch Cutler cited a variety of factors behind the closure. "I have been working 90 hours a week for 36 years, and I no longer have the wherewithal to fight them — all of these various reasons," he told me in late January.

The shop is still selling merchandise online, however...
