Brooklyn’s ‘Bulletin’ Readies New Store in Little Italy
Brooklyn startup darlings, Bulletin Broads, are set to open another Manhattan outpost. This time in Little Italy.
The four-month-old business – a permanent pop-up of sorts run entirely by five women – recently inked a lease for 27 Prince Street. Right beside Prince Street Pizza, which should bode well for foot traffic. Employees are still organizing the store, and it should open within the coming days.
Bulletin essentially sells other people’s stuff. Shelves are stocked almost exclusively with mostly online-only brands that pay a fee for the in-store privilege. Kind of like what Tictail is doing over at the corner of Orchard and Broome Streets. Brick-and-mortar locations are divided into different sections of varying sizes, which are then rented by businesses on a monthly basis.
Per the website:
We wanted to reinvent the way stores work, and make it easier for brands to access physical retail space. With the internet, anyone can open an online store in just a few clicks. How could we bring this ease and efficiency to traditional retail?
So we built a platform that allows brands to share the cost of a real-life store. Our team scours the internet to dig up the very best brands and gets their products on the shelf in just a few days.
