Block Headwear Vacating 10 Prince Street
Commercial space on the periphery of the Bowery is becoming too rich even for the type of business it’s presumably trying to attract. That of high-end boutique stores. On a block plagued with high retail turnover – the eastern terminus of Prince Street – another fashionable newcomer is on the outs already. As we speak, Block Headwear at 10 Prince is liquidating its inventory at deep discounts (50%) in anticipation of an alleged move to parts unknown. The store resided here for nigh on two years.
Block Headwear has been crafting stylish hats for over a decade, and 10 Prince Street was the short-lived flagship. The New York-based company was founded in May 2000 by Cuban-born designer Ciomi McCabe who has prior experience working for Kangol.
No word just yet on the successor.
Meanwhile, this is the second such departure from this territory in under a month. Henry Lehr also packed up the goods across the street, with Jack’s Coffee rumored as replacement tenant.
