Multiple questions have flowed in asking about the demise of The Source gift and toy shop, located at 1409 3rd ave (near 80th). Alert tipster Joanna (proprietor of the MyMomShops blog) writes in with some details:
"There is a new sign in window of The Source (a store where you could buy almost anything...) that it is closing. Owner told me that they are being forced to leave after 27 years by the landlord. So are all the other stores on the block except the jewelry store (and I doubt Chase Bank). Lots of passerbys were coming in and asking about the sign and seemed upset- as did the store's employees."
