‘Miss Hoe’ Opens Another Pop-Up Boutique at 26 Canal Street

Ever since Miss Hoe departed 2 Prince Street last June, the boutique has been livin’ like a refugee. It relocated to 11 Kenmare Street (aka 176 Bowery) three months later, maintaining a pop-up presence in the interim. Even after the notorious Thor Equities snapped up the building in early May for $10.2 million.

Now, a southerly expansion.

Proprietor Abby S.F. Hoe opened a second temporary location deeper into the Lower East Side a couple weeks ago, settling on the white-hot block of Canal Street near Seward Park. 26 Canal, to be exact; formerly a bubble tea cafe (and before that, variety shop and video game outpost).

We are told that this outpost will remain here for the next four months, until October 2015.
