The one thing New York City needs right now is another surf shop, right? And Patagonia is going to give it to them right straight in the Bowery. Work has reportedly begun at 313 Bowery according to a story on Bowery Boogie.
A batch of permits was recently filed with the DOB for “structural work in an existing store” and for the forthcoming illuminated “Fish” sign. Plus, a mess of scaffolding also made an appearance yesterday morning. Patagonia initially intended to open the surf shop in the fall, but Hurricane Sandy totally sidelined the project. With work already underway, a summertime launch doesn’t seem out of the question.
Yeah, they’d almost have to have it done by summer. For more, click the link.
