The bad news: The world's largest eggroll factory is no longer in Williamsburg. The good news: The space has turned into Peachfrog, a big, shabby-chic clothing store promising "70-90% off everyday!" (per their website) on items from Miss Sixty, Diesel, Betsey Johnson, and other designers.
A tipster who stopped by this weekend gave us this intel: "The majority of the space is for women's clothes with some men's clothes, shoes, handbags and home goods thrown in for good measure. There was promotional pricing for the opening weekend (which was still going on this weekend)—most shirts and pants were $25, jackets $40, Miss Sixty sneakers were $15 and boots were $25." The store, on 10th Street between Bedford and Berry, opened November 1st. They're expecting to get in more menswear and winter coats soon.
