‘iMakr’ 3D Printer Ends its Allen Street Tenancy After 3 Years
Stop the presses. The iMakr 3D printing company just shuttered its Allen Street flagship storefront. It had been a three-year jaunt for the London-based company.
The iMakr showroom-slash-studio is now headquartered in Brooklyn’s Industry City, and still maintains its e-commerce solution online.
Until its departure this month, the shop sold a selection of 3D Printers, filaments, and materials. It also provided services such as on-demand printing and training. One of its more popular items, however, was the “Mini You” profile statuette, touted as the “ultimate selfie.”
The demise of iMakr at 152 Allen is not really surprising. This side of the street, north of Rivington, is seemingly a tough sell for retail. Indeed, it’s a block plagued with vacancies, some of which have been so for years. Foot traffic pattern here is somewhat of an anomaly, and and high rents likely contribute to the trend.
