The Town Shop, the bra and clothing store on Broadway between 81st and 82nd, has closed its doors temporarily to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. A sign on the shop’s door notifies customers that they can always use the website for a “bra emergency.”
Mindy, who sent the photo above, told us she was “not sure what constitutes a bra emergency” but thought that overall it was an “uplifting message.”
Town Shop was founded in 1888 and it’s been on Broadway since 1936.
Danny Koch, Town Shop’s fourth-generation owner, told us that they’re offering 20% off of online sales at TownShop.com if you use the code westsiderag. It’s time to support the neighborhood and support yourself!
Laytner’s Linen, another longtime local spot located next door to Town Shop, has also closed temporarily. Support them at laytners.com or call 212-724-1987 ext. 116.
