‘Round Two’ Opens Today, Brings Vintage and Long Queues to Hell Square

Posted on: October 11th, 2017 at 10:00 am by

Round Two vintage and secondhand shop debuts later today in Hell Square.

Hype is heady. A tipster tells us that excited customers began queuing outside the store at 113 Stanton Street yesterday evening. Seemingly out of nowhere, as buildout had been underway for the last couple months.

Residents nearby weren’t too thrilled, though. Apparently, music was blasting from the parked cars all night.

Round Two is new to the city; it’s their first major foray into the New York scene. Their last taste of the neighborhood was a pop-up at the likeminded Procell boutique on Delancey Street last year.

Founded by Sean Wotherspoon, Chris Russow, and Luke Fraser, Round Two placates both vintage seekers (e.g. old school Supreme, band shirts) and sneaker heads. Customers can buy, sell, or trade their gear. Apparently, the store amassed a local celebrity following in Los Angeles, and could do the same here.
