Tictail Brick-and-Mortar Market on Orchard Street Goes Under

Posted on: January 17th, 2019 at 5:05 am by

Tictail officially closed down its Lower East Side market last month. The former shop at 90 Orchard Street is now a vacancy with the token farewell letter on the door.

This retail surrender follows just a short while after the Swedish startup’s high-profile acquisition by Shopify.

As for what’s next, expect nightlife of some sort. There was already one potential suitor for the corner space. Grey Lady owner Ryan Chadwick, whose plans for a new concept here seemed to have fizzled (Community Board 3 application scratched this month).

Tictail Market opened at 90 Orchard Street as a pop-up in November 2014. It was preceded years earlier but the over-priced denim boutique, Earnest Sewn.
