Sprint is Returning to Delancey Street with New Outpost in the Old Popeyes Space

The recent failure of fried chicken at 108 Delancey netted a new vacancy for the taking. Popeye’s ended its six-year run last January, and morphed a month later into a knockoff version of same. Yet, like its predecessor, the attempt to spawn new life in the commercial unit ultimately went south five months later.
Massey Knakal has been repping the 2,200 square-foot former fast food joint since September and finally found a taker. Earlier this week, Sprint minions loaded shelving, window ads, and other retail infrastsructure into the store. This is a second coming of sorts for the wireless provider, which was booted from its previous location across the street at 101 Delancey.
With the addition of Sprint at 108 Delancey, all of the major mobile players are now represented on the north side of this corridor. AT&T, T-Mobile, the new Verizon store at Holiday Inn, and Boost Mobile are all represented within a short five-block radius.
