Dimes Back on Track as ‘Deli’ for Division Street, Including Expansion Next Door

Ever since Dimes debuted its big kahuna cafeteria across the way at 49 Canal Street, the OG headquarters on Division Street has been dormant. A handwritten message on the door still directs customers to the new location; the artwork in its windows is likewise faded.
The initial goal here was to install Dimes Superette in the cubbyhole space. Owner Sabrina de Sousa had described the endeavor as a “market” that would feature organic produce, dry goods, and an apothecary alongside a take-away counter.
Those plans were reportedly on shaky ground, though. As recently as last month, we heard chatter that other businesses were interested in the Division Street space. Yet that intel has been shot down by de Sousa, saying that it’s “100% false.”
So now Dimes is reportedly back on track for 143 Division Street. With a twist. Dimes Deli, as it’s called, will finally exact revenge on the former Great Wall Chinatown bus stop next door, which plagued them from the beginning. (It was an illegal bus stop that had patrons hanging on Dimes’ doorstep.) Indeed, we are told the forthcoming marketplace will soon expand into this adjacent space.
Expect Dimes Deli to debut at 143 Division this fall.
