After two successful holiday season stints, the e-commerce shop Tictail decided to make a more permanent presence on the Lower East Side. Gallerist and building owner Mark Miller just brought the crew back to 90 Orchard Street for more retail peddling.

The brick-and-mortar shop reopened today after a few weeks behind paper shades. As before, Tictail is spotlighting products from emerging designers from around the world, with particular focus on brands rooted in Paris, Stockholm, and New York City. We are told that the online company signed a one-year lease on the space.

Which means the corner is again spared from nightlife. Indeed, there have been many listings over the last year pimping the $13,000-a-month space for restaurant use.

Tictail is now a local business, and maintains a headquarters just a few blocks to the west at 337 Broome Street (at the Bowery).
