xinghui

Well, that was fast. Less than five months after opening, Xing Hui Fashion at 1222 Avenue U is now closed.

We spotted the “For rent” signs this morning. It was only in March that we announced the business was set to open, selling jewelry, handbags, clothing, shoes and accessories.

Hopefully the location fills up faster than its previous vacancy. It sat empty for at least a year following the closure of a formal attire retailer and tailor.

    You missed this on Avenue U between East 13th and East 14th Street. Kiddos opened in the summer of 2007. It closed recently too.

      I didn’t miss it. One thing at a time.

    Anyone old enough to remember when Richard Yee’s closed? Now half the Ave. U block between E. 26 -27 streets is vacant.

    Ave U and E 16 Street has lost two stores recently. One of the Corner Fruit and Veg operations shuttered in July and now I see that Dry Cleaners on the southwest corner is gone. What the heck is going on here? And yes, Richard Yee’s has been vacant for many years. I wonder if real estate taxes are being paid by the owner of that vacant property?

      The Fruit and Vegetable store had a lot of nearby competition. And the entire building where the Dry Cleaners was is now vacant.
