Malin+Goetz, Chelsea's modern apothecary, has been keeping busy—and not just with their super PH-balanced skincare, body, and hair products. They've been expanding their sleek little store at 177 Seventh Avenue between 20th and 21st Streets. The renovations, which should be completed in two weeks time, will ultimately double the size of the boutique. Workers have cleared out the former brickwalled office space in the rear of the store to make more room for their signature lotions and potions (like the best-selling grapefruit face cleanser) and also to add some new features to the tiny flagship. The duo behind the eponymous store, Andrew Goetz and Matthew Malin, are also planning to add a perfumery, votive candles, and other bodycare extension lines.
