Organic Avenue Ditches 116 Suffolk Street

From humble beginnings to city domination, Organic Avenue is on the up-and-up, constantly expanding. In fact, its ascension to health stratosphere is the reasoning behind its departure from the Space of Love at 116 Suffolk Street. It had operated here in the Rothko building for almost four years.

A Boogie reader informed us that the company closed its Lower East Side shop on Tuesday night with a customer appreciation party. The news is somewhat bittersweet, considering the company is abandoning its roots – owner Denise Mari opened the first space at 101 Stanton in 2006 (it’s now Bisous Ciao macarons). She had been making the juices in her loft since 2002.

We received the following comment from PR:

Our Lower East Side boutique served as the home of our corporate office. Due to our rapid expansion, we have grown out of our Lower East Side office space, so we have migrated to a larger office space in the Chelsea area.

Our company is in the midst of an exciting growth-spurt and we are expanding every day so stay tuned for info on specific locations and neighborhoods. We hope to sprout in the Lower East Side again.

116 Suffolk Street is now ready for love once again. No word just yet on the retail successor.

Organic Avenue has eleven locations between New York City and Long Island (Roslyn).
