Essex Street’s Big Apple Boxes Quietly Folds
This image has been archived or removed.
Big Apple Boxes quietly folded a couple weeks ago. The space was cleared and vacated without explanation.
When we called about the closure at the time, the owner (presumably) told us that the store was temporarily closed for “inventory.” That it would reopen in the coming days. False. Tombstone leasing signage now holds court at 41 Essex Street.
Big Apple Boxes – in business for over five decades – had moved to this location a few years ago. No word yet on whether a new location has been secured. One thing is for sure; they certainly had enough boxes for pack-up.
