A. Turen Reopens at 85 Stanton

Posted on: December 2nd, 2010 at 6:08 am by

A few weeks after our sneak peek inside the new A. Turen headquarters at 85 Stanton Street, the trendy Lower East Side boutique is back on track.  No more moving, no more renovations. The all-glass doors officially reopened earlier this week, with requisite mannequins staring out the windows.

As for the symbiotic yogurt stand to occupy the small space next door?  Well, according to the Facebook page, Pop Yogurt will reportedly be serving their brand of frozen treats to both in-store customers and passing pedestrians.  With this tiny storefront, the fro-yo joint is poised to pick up plenty of new customers, thanks to the nearby Meatball Shop.  Pop Yogurt is currently located crosstown in SoHo at 410a West Broadway.

A. Turen, 85 Stanton Street, (212) 533-8200

As construction progresses at 76 East Houston, the adjacent graffiti wall suffers.
