Fashion & Fashion at 160 Orchard Going Out of Business

Posted on: January 8th, 2010 at 6:37 am by

The casualties on upper Orchard Street are steadily mounting.  As trendy business and out-of-context development maintain a stranglehold on the block, the mom-and-pops continue to suffer.  A few weeks ago, S.K. Gift Shop at 190 Orchard announced its imminent closure.  Now, Fashion & Fashion Ladies Apparel, located in the southern storefront of 160 Orchard, is throwing in the towel. Misrahi Realty already has its gaudy “store for rent” sign above the doorway, while a contrasting going-out-of-business announcement hangs subtly in the window.

According to the website listing, Misrahi is seeking a retail tenant to shell out $4,000 a month for the ground floor and basement, each level measuring 450 square-feet.  Since a food establishment is not an option, we can probably expect another boutique-slash-store with lots of brightly-lit open space and nothing in it.
