Chillhouse Shutters Original Essex Street Spa
The list of coronavirus-related business closures is getting longer by the week. Today brings word that an Essex Street newcomer has bitten the dust.
“As we all know too well by now, COVID-19 has been no easy feat. With the fight far from over, countless businesses have taken some serious hits — and unfortunately we are one of them,” the e-mail stated.
Founder Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton opened Chillhouse on the Lower East Side in 2017. The 3,200 square-foot flagship store on Varick Street opened two years later. This location is slated to return later this month.
In an era of social distancing, the nature of a spa related operation is certainly a tougher sell.
