Dimes Deli debuted in September where it all began two years ago. The homestead of 143 Division Street. However, the casual takeaway concept launched without its other half. That of the adjacent marketplace.

Owners Sabrina De Sousa, Alissa Wagner, and Sophie Helsby taped vintage clippings to the other storefront at 143 Division last month while preparations took place within. Well, looks like the lion’s share of the legwork is complete, with much of the window paper removed to reveal the interior.

As previously reported, this extension of Dimes Deli is actually a dedicated (nay, trendy) marketplace for peddling grocery items alongside the Dimes apothecary line. “Part Deux” is also believed to include delivery service.

This adjacent annex was initially expected to open by Halloween, but was delayed a month. New launch date floated is December 1.

And so, just like that, Dimes beat its bus stop nemesis that long preceded it. The illegal Great Wall Chinatown bus operator relocated back in July after years of un-permitted pickups and drop-offs.
