Decades-Old Orchard Street Haberdasher Back on the Market
On the block for more than sixty years, the Global International menswear store is again up for grabs.
The haberdashery has been on and off the market a few times since 2017. Four years ago, furor ensued after we posted a story about its possible closure. Egged on by the appearance of a Misrahi leasing sign. Longtime owner Sammy Gluck, who is also the landlord, noted that he had no intention of retiring and that the listing was only to “test the market.”
Test, they continued. And now another; a fresh real estate listing is on Craigslist for the 2,100 square-foot shop at 62 Orchard. All uses are considered, and the space can be divided with venting possible. Meaning, nightlife potential is high.
No rent amount is listed, but likely in the neighborhood of the last ask – $30,000 per month.
The Global International men’s outfitter reportedly opened more than sixty years ago, after Gluck’s father Isaac emigrated from Romania during World War II. Isaac lost his entire family in the Holocaust, according to The Villager. He started the business by peddling shirts and ties door-to-door, and saved enough money to open on Orchard Street, where religious Jews lived and worked.
