‘Cigar & Vape’ Smoked Out of Essex Street After a Year in Business
Cigar & Vape is gone, smoked out of Essex Street in swift time. The smoke shop-cum-bodega at 41 Essex lasted barely a year at this store before shuttering.
News of its closure isn’t quite surprising, though. We’ve come across a pretty steady stream of real estate listings over the last few months pimping this 400 square-foot store. The latest pitch is $4,300 per month in rent; all businesses considered.
The commercial space at 41 Essex was previously occupied by Big Apple Boxes, which itself relocated around the corner to Ludlow Street last January after many years at this address. Said business has reportedly been operating for more than five decades.
