Bonnie’s on Orchard Becoming Dollar Pizza Joint
Days are definitely numbered for the last tangible vestige of Bonnie’s New York at 117 Orchard Street. That of the longstanding baby-blue sign bolted to the building facade. Ever since this member of the old guard of bargain district merchants folded in August 2009, the store just north of Delancey remained a vacant vortex. The roll-down gates have been drawn for the better part of three years, with the retail footprint sitting un-pretty. Not to mention the leasing banner which became a mainstay in itself.
But last week, activity jumpstarted onsite, with a handful of workers pacing the property on numerous occasions. It was then we knew something new was to arrive in due course. Something cheesy. Indeed, a dollar slice joint called “99c Fresh Pizza” is planning an outpost here. Budget munchies that no doubt cater more to the non-local crowd of bar-goers.
