Come summer, you see retailers around the city leaving the doors of their stores propped wide open in the hopes of enticing shoppers in with blasts of frigid air conditioning. In protest of this decidedly carbon-non-neutral trend we bring you, This Store Blows, highlighting the city's worst offenders. Want to join forces with us? Contributions, accompanied by a photo, are always accepted.
Store: Daffy's, 462 Broadway at Grand Street Date: 7/02/08. Time: 20 minutes ago. Why This Store Blows: Come for the air conditioning, stay for the weird wicker furniture section and racks of thin, low-v-neck men's sweaters that'd pair perfectly with a gold necklace and and a dollop of hair gel.
