Culture on the Cheap
New York Shitty Day Ender: Everything Must Go!
Some of you may recall this establishment’s history; it’s original moniker was XTRA Discount Store and it was located across the street. It closed its doors in March of 2008. Among the reasons cited was their landlord’s refusal to renew their lease. As a result, it was replaced by a very shortly-lived branch of Washington Mutual. Given I purchased a number of housewares/sundries at this establishment let’s just say I was more than a little disappointed.
Thus you can understand my glee, gentle readers, when I received word eight months later that they were coming back (albeit under a different name) just across the street! Well, now they are leaving for good. As it was explained to me by the woman staffing the cash register their current landlord did not want them there and to this end raised their rent.
So long, Bang For Your Buck. I suspect I speak for many who have relied upon you for housewares over the years when I write that you will be missed!
