Suite Orchard Closing Its 145 Orchard Boutique

Posted on: November 15th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

At age four, the Suite Orchard boutique is a relative geezer when compared with its fashion-minded contemporaries on the Lower East Side. Most trendy shops barely survive two years in this neighborhood before going bust. But it seems this fate has now befallen the “veteran.”

The telltale Misrahi “store for rent” sign arrived on the second floor of 145 Orchard Street within the last couple weeks, spelling a troubled fate in no uncertain terms. Business is not operational, either. During normal daytime hours, the doors are locked with window treatments obstructing any direct views inside the store. Peeking through some of the curtain breaks, however, we noticed an empty store with cardboard packing boxes scattered about. No updates are logged on the website, Facebook, or Twitter accounts.

Meanwhile, a real estate listing for the 450 square-foot “legendary retail location” has already surfaced on Craigslist. 145 Orchard Street is presently being considered for all uses at a hefty $7,500 per month.
