The build-out continues inside Essex Card Shop, the business gutted by a fire in early January at 47 Avenue A.
Owner Muhammad Aslam (above) provided EVG contributor Stacie Joy with an interior update the other day. As you can see, the new floor, walls and ceiling are all in place... with workers starting on the shelving phase ...
Aslam is hopeful that the longtime family-owned business can be up and running again in three to four weeks.
