Civilianaire Fails Out of 53 East Houston After Two Years

We saw this one coming a mile away. A death watch that came to pass.
The year-long 50%-off merchandise sale became a rather sure indication of demise. It was just a matter of when. Well, that day of reckoning arrived yesterday for the Civilianaire boutique on East Houston, where a constant placement of window signage had previously advertised the deep discounts. Not to mention, we rarely saw that many shoppers frequenting.
As of last night, the owners were busy emptying the corner spot.
What a total waste. We predicted this would happen after a neighborhood lifeblood was categorically purged to court luxury back in 2012. You remember – the La Cocina Deli that operated here for many years. Shortly after the store was boarded up, angry patrons scrawled their thoughts for months.
