​Dimes Deli debuts today at its original location on Division Street. The cubbyhole space had been dormant for months in the wake of the move across to 49 Canal Street. Yet recent activity onsite, including the updated window leafing – confirmed plans.

The 143 Division store was essentially the “Dimes Suprette” concept initially floated last year in the bid for a liquor license from Community Board 3. Overall gist of the endeavor is a “market” that features organic produce, dry goods, and an apothecary alongside a take-away counter. Several sources also note that Dimes Deli will eventually expand into the adjacent space previously occupied by an illegal Chinatown bus company.

As for the latter, that footprint doesn’t seem ready for the big time just yet. No permits are on file with the Department of Buildings for this job.

Meanwhile, the Dimes Deli website has been online for a little while, yet doesn’t provide much in the way of information.
