Unable to Negotiate Lease Renewal, ‘Flow Life’ Holistic Lounge Departs After 2 Years on Orchard Street

Chalk up 58 Orchard Street as another cursed retail space.

The Flow Life holistic lounge shuttered last week after just over two years on the block. Reason given – per the farewell letter taped to the door – is they were “unable to negotiate a lease renewal.” Ownership is currently seeking a larger location to “create a grander healing center.”

Flow Life arrived at 58 Orchard in September 2014, selling a variety of goods that offered a variety of products to inspire the mind, body, and soul. The space was last home to the Little Shoe Store, which moved to the block in 2012 from the East Village. Like its predecessor, two years seems all retailers can manage here (and elsewhere in the neighborhood, for that matter).
