The whispers about Stanton Street boutique Shop's relocation are true: Staff of the LES mainstay are packing up the merch from a storefront at 105 Stanton Street they've called home for ten odd years and hauling it down to a new location at 94 Orchard Street (formerly a shoe store that specialized in alligator loafers). It's a risky move, since the streets south Delancey don't have nearly the foot traffic of those north of it. But according to the email just sent out by the Shop girls, the new space is much larger than the old one, allowing them to stock menswear along with their excellent offerings for ladies. Remember to look both ways, and bring your credit card, when crossing the street.
