Intermix Instead Angling for Steve’s on the Bowery Locale

Posted on: August 20th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Last week, we exclusively revealed that the Intermix brand is headed for the pillaged pastures of the Bowery. Bowery 2.0, that is. Sources familiar with the situation disclose that the original 54 Bond Street deal actually fell through at the last minute, coupled with a chorus of vehement denials by current fashion occupant Billy Reid. We are told, however, that a new location was quickly found in the ensuing days.

Hell-bent on securing a piece of not-so-humble Bowery pie, Intermix is instead evoking plan B and settling for a recently-listed space just around the corner. Steve’s on the Bowery, the longtime neighborhood bodega which hit the rental market back in June, is reportedly the latest destination. According to EV Grieve, however, the store itself probably won’t be available for possession until January 2013 at the earliest. So it’s a safe bet that it’ll be quite some time before we see these “A-listers” and “glam fashionistas” around these parts.
