‘Pop Karma’ Shuts Down Orchard Street Shop After More than 5 Years
The kernel is down.
Pop Karma, the gourmet popcorn purveyor on Orchard Street, just called it quits. The sliver storefront went silent this past Friday after spending more than five years on the block.
The official announcement came a couple weeks ago, in which owner Jean Tsai explained that the product isn’t going anywhere. Rather, Pop Karma is apparently focusing efforts to “be in grocery stores near you and online (in different packaging with a long shelf life) later this year.”
Pop Karma first opened at 95 Orchard Street in July 2012. It took over the space from il Laboratorio del Gelato, which occupied the space for eight years until it moved to 180 Ludlow in November 2010.
