Is it a 99 Cent Store if nothing is 99 cents

The 99 cent store on 23rd Street has re-opened with a new design and new owners. As with the previous store, nothing in here is 99 cents. In fact, most of their poor quality merchandise is more expensive than buying a better quality name-brand in the supermarket or drug store. Maybe they should change the awnings. They will likely be out of business again soon.

New Pharmacy on 23rd Street

There has been a ‘New Pharmacy’ sign in the window of this space on 23rd Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue for a year. Construction is now under way. They will certainly have a lot of competition with CVS and Halpern between 1-2 Ave, and Duane Reades on 3rd and Lexington Avenues.
