GREENWICH VILLAGE/MIDTOWN EAST—Greenwich Village is losing another quaint little shop. A tipster writes: "Gotta Knit! is moving. Saturday is the last day at 498 Sixth Avenue. On Sunday, they move to 14 East 34th Street. They're on the fifth floor (but there's an elevator!) of a small office building just east of Fifth Avenue, convenient to Jim Hanley's Universe on West 33rd Street." [RackedWire Inbox]
MIDTOWN WEST—More news on Steve & Barry's: the Manhattan Mall outpost is under construction. "They're remodeling the whole mall," stated the Steve & Barry's staffer we spoke with, who added that everything in the store is currently $8.99. So many bargains! [RackedWire]
