GEM Super Value Store Returning to Delancey

When Children’s Place vacated the Loews Delancey building at the corner of Suffolk Street two years ago, the rather large commercial footprint was carved into two separate spaces. 7-Eleven became the first replacement tenant, bringing its bright lights and bodega-killing mentality to the neighborhood. The other half of 142-146 Delancey remained a dusty vacancy … until recently.

Contractors have been onsite since early last month remodeling the store ahead of a new budget tenant. Workers and employees roaming the store confirmed to us that GEM Super Value is opening here. Which, if you recall, is a homecoming for the brand. Indeed, the discount retailer previously operated one block west at 128 Delancey before Blue Condo decimated its ranks.

Perhaps this entrant will help keep Delancey a diverse stretch catering to all strata in the Lower East Side.
