Death of the Park Slope 99 Cent Store: Another One Bites Dust
Right after Christmas, we noticed that one of our favorite 99 center stores on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope started putting huge sale signs in the window. We thought they might be going out of business, but the signs didn't say anything about it closing. Now, they do. This store is next to a Washington Mutual branch and down the block from a building we like to call the No Baby Gap Building (the new building on the left in the photo below), after some graffiti that graced its construction fence. It is on a block that is rapidly changing. It's a fairly large space and there is now a "for rent" sign up as well, so it will be interesting to see what business takes this space. Safe to say it won't be a 99 cent store.
