LOWER EAST SIDE—From this Craigslist post, we glean that eco-friendly vegan footwear shop Moo Shoes is packing up and leaving Allen Street. Don't fret, though—the company is settling down elsewhere. From the curiously-phrased listing: "Available for October, this store on Allen street, offers large remodeled space with 800 sf of street level retail space and basement with access from within, outgoing succesful shoe business grew large here, and moving to larger quarters. Great peedestrain traffic and in very busy area. many cukltural events right by, an ongoing developing area quickly becoming very chick. Call owner's fro details." [RackedWire Inbox]
