Vida Natural Folds After 20 Years on Clinton Street; Neighborhood Pawn Shop Moves in
This image has been archived or removed.
Vida Natural on Clinton Street – founded by Jose Romano two decades ago – closed up shop last week after more than a month of uncertainty. The liquidation sale advertised in its windows of late was the tell-tale sign of demise. We hear that rising rents were the ultimate kicker.
A replacement for the health shop is already lined up, though, and a retail refugee in its own right.
The La Socia Pawn Shop from up the block (69 Clinton Street) is moving in, and already readying the space for the imminent arrival. No word just yet on what might take its place.
Both these businesses are Clinton Street stalwarts, with Vida Natural having operated on the block for twenty years.
