The Cast Reopens in a Larger Orchard Street Space Thursday

Posted on: January 30th, 2018 at 5:11 am by

Signage has been in place for a couple weeks, but now The Cast is ready for a return to Orchard Street.

The popular leather shop parted ways with its longtime host – The Great Frog – and will instead set up shop at 72 Orchard Street directly next door.

Owner Chuck Guarino took to Instagram to announce the reopening of The Cast this Thursday.

This is seemingly a big step for the thirteen-year-old leather brand, which was founded below 119 Ludlow Street in 2004. It’s been pinballing around Orchard Street ever since moving here in 2010. After getting the boot from number 71 in June 2015 – the result of a rent hike – Guarino took a hiatus before returning a few months later with a piggyback spot at the Great Frog.
