Another day, another ominous sign for a Lincoln Square store catering to middle class people.
The Rite Aid at 210 West 70th street on Amsterdam Avenue now has a “for rent” sign on it. Upper West Sider Michael Vooss took the photo above on Monday. A manager at Rite Aid told us that we’d have to call the folks at the corporate office to find out more. They didn’t return our call.
This comes one day after we learned that the Food Emporium on 68th will close in May.
We had heard that the store was in trouble and could close. One of our tipsters overheard a manager saying they hope to stay in the neighborhood. Let’s hope so; they have some great cereal deals, and I even remember seeing 50-cent candy there a few weeks back. Fifty-cent candy!
Anyone else know the status and timing? Let us know.
