Children’s Place on Delancey Folds for Good After 2 Decades
The Lower East Side outpost of The Children’s Place closed down last month. Signage in the windows advertised a fire sale on goods, alongside messaging that January 2021 was the final month in business.
While coronavirus may have exacerbated matters for the bottom line, this Children’s Place location hit the market pre-pandemic. Exactly one year ago. The 7,600 square-foot space was pitched as a perfect opportunity due to its proximity to Essex Crossing. With all types of uses considered.
As for The Children’s Place, the budget apparel company has pinballed around Delancey Street for two decades. It held down a sizable footprint inside the former Loews Delancey for years, but relocated down the block to 126 Delancey in the spring of 2011.
