As we first reported on Dec. 20, Timbuktu, the Moroccan specialty shop at 45 Second Ave. between Second Street and Third Street, was closing in the weeks ahead.
The shop is nearly empty now... owner and East Village resident Del Blaoui said that they only have a few days or a week left and he's looking to sell his showcases and tables ... the spring of 2021, decided to terminate the shop's lease.
Blaoui has been in the wholesale business for four decades and has been in this location for 20 years.
Timbuktu is usually open 1-8 p.m. Phone: (212) 473-4955.
