‘Delancey Wine’ Grows Exponentially with Move Down the Block

Posted on: May 9th, 2017 at 5:19 am by

In one swift move, Delancey Wine is no longer a stuffy cubbyhole store. The nine-year-old mom-and-pop, located on the outskirts of Seward Park, will open its much larger headquarters next Sunday (May 13).

As previously reported, ownership signed a lease down the block at 35 Essex Street. Cause for the change in scenery was a purported twofold increase in rent. It’s now set to occupy half the space left behind by the Grand Tile Corp, which was subdivided after the business relocated to Brooklyn at the end of last year. This is an upgrade in every sense of the word for Delancey Wine. It’s brighter, more open, and exponentially larger.

Take a look…

License is still pending.

Delancey Wine opened at 41 Essex Street in late 2008. (Their arrival on Essex Street was one of the first posts on Bowery Boogie.) The store replaced the Glatt Kosher deli caterer, G&M, which occupied the space for decades.
