Chinatown Duane Reade on Bowery Shutters
As of today, the Lower East Side scoreboard reads as follows: Bowery – 1, Duane Reade – 0
Mom-and-pop assassin Duane Reade shuttered its lone outpost along the Bowery in recent weeks. Illuminated lettering was pried from the facade of 50 Bowery, while the windows received the brown paper treatment. Let the property cleanse begin. In the meantime, those who had prescriptions at this location are urged to head over to 111 Worth Street.
It’s definitely a rare sight to see Duane Reade edged out of a neighborhood. Despite the perceived victory, we still get the feeling that the drug store chain will return to the Bowery in the near future.
