Urgent Care Center to Open in Sleepy’s Mattress Space on Delancey

Back in August, we filed a report on the closure of the Sleepy’s mattress outpost at 138 Delancey (formerly Ratner’s). The shutter lasted only until Labor Day, though, when the store reopened to capitalize on holiday sales. It would remain in business for the next six months, with the RKF leasing sign hanging in the front window the whole time.

The departure finally happened, though, and this time for good. A few weeks ago, the Sleepy’s lettering was completely stripped from the marquee, which once housed the illustrious red Ratner’s neons. In a rather quick turn of events, the 5,000 square-foot space is now leased. Brown paper is in the windows for the current build-out.

Permits on file with the Department of Buildings suggest that some sort of urgent care medical center will soon arrive. No mention of the company, though.
