Soho Cleaners Moves to 301 Elizabeth Street

Posted on: December 1st, 2010 at 6:07 am by

The McNally effect is in, dare we say, full effect at the corner of Bowery and East Houston.  Sandwiched between Pulino’s and the new Rag & Bone outpost, it was only a matter of time before Soho Cleaners fell victim.  Their number was called, so to speak, last week before Thanksgiving. However, customers who frequent the dry cleaner needn’t worry.

Soho Cleaners packed up the gear and relocated to 301 Elizabeth Street, just one block north of East Houston.  Owners wasted no time with the new space, which is already open with an upgraded look – from bright yellow signage to a subtle maroon awning.  And there is even a slogan to boot, “Nobody Beats Our Price & Quality.”

Back at the former HQ, meanwhile, DIY signs alert the neighborhood to the move.  And what will become of 77 East Houston, you ask? It remains to be seen at this juncture, yet some type of luxury goods shop is our best bet.  Perhaps a snazzy boutique pretending to be a thrift store pretending to be a pawn shop.
