Village Grannies is closing on 9th Street

Village Grannies is closing up shop at 346 E. Ninth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue. 

Vered Behr and Zviah Eldar, aka the "Village Grannies," opened the storefront in November 2016... far ahead of the current smoke-shop-on-every-corner trend. 

The shop sells stylish smoking accessories ... much more unique offerings than the mall-like goods seen more frequently today.

For now, all items in the store are 50% off... We didn't hear an official reason for the closure... the shop's fans who reached out to us with the news hope that the Village Grannies can relocate.

So sad to hear this, it was a lovely nook in the neighborhood & much more comfortable to browse vs the every-corner-smokeshop. :(

Sorry to hear this. Their prices were a bit high but at least it was a unique, interesting store — unlike 95% of the new smoke shops which all look and feel exactly the same (bad).

I'm sorry to hear this, they were by far the nicest smoke shop in the EV. Nice pieces (I loved the way they hung the pipes by strings) and the best, sweetest service you could ask for. Grannies with hearts of gold!

In my heart of hearts, I'm hoping the grannies decided to retire!
