Rent Hike Forces Longtime Broome Street Tailor to Close
As first reported last month, the end of the line is nigh for 264 Tailor. The local mom-and-pop closes after business today, the victim of an untenable rent Hike.
On the block for more than two decades, the lease on 264 Broome Street is up. And the landlord wants more money. Mark Miller’s real estate group is repping the small store, yet it’s unclear at the moment what the asking rent is.
264 Tailor was founded in 1992 at its namesake address.
There are still several neighborhood tailor shops from which to choose, mainly residing within the confines of Hell Square. Most reputable, of course, is the Stanton Tailor Shop, owned and run by Pablo Vargas. As 264 was one of the only tailors serving the area blocks south of Delancey Street, many will see this as a tough loss.
