Miss Hoe on Canal St.

Miss Hoe is again on the run. The quirky accessories boutique (named for its owner, not a porn euphemism) has bounced around the Bowery the last five years, and even opened a satellite store four months ago down at 26 Canal Street. Now both locations, including the semi-permanent outpost at 11 Kenmare, are closing for good.

Fire sales have been in place for weeks, but the end is nigh. The Chinatown pop-up will throw in the towel after business tomorrow; the Kenmare location by year’s end.

“I’m just going to do online business for now, taking a winter break and away from all the hype of the rentals,” proprietor Abby S.F. Hoe explained in an email. But she does hope to return in some capacity next spring.

Miss Hoe first opened at 2 Prince Street back in 2010, holding down the cornershop for four years. After the closure, Hoe settled two blocks south at 11 Kenmare, where it’s been ever since. The building sale to the notorious Thor Equities last May probably accelerated the end date.
