‘The Juicery’ Squeezed Out of Essex Street After a Year on the Block
Grand opening, grand closing. That’s the storyline at 15 Essex Street, where year-old Juicery was recently squeezed out of existence.
The first indications of demise were a couple weeks ago when workers were seen dismantling the store. Then the gates just stayed shut, with nary an announcement of closure on any of its socials or in real life. The official website says it all on the splash page – “Juicery. Closed.”
The Juicery was founded at the end of August 2014, capitalizing on the trend of serving overpriced raw, organic, and cold-pressed juices. In the end, the business lasted just over a year on the Seward Park periphery.
