The East Village and Lower East Side are organizing to fight “Formula Retail,” which is simply a euphemism for chain stores. We’ve already seen it with the highly-vocal “No 7-Eleven” grassroots organization that first rallied to oppose a 7-Eleven at 500 East Eleventh Street (Avenue A).
Tomorrow evening, the East Village Community Coalition is hosting a workshop against the invasion of said formula retail.
From the mailbag:
EVCC invites you to voice your opinion about the current state of chain stores within the East Village.
