Henry Lehr has been in retail for so long that his daughter Christina, who grew up above his namesake store, now has a shop of her own. But according to Bowery Boogie, Lehr's Prince Street boutique abruptly closed this weekend after the landlord asked for a "major rent increase." Rumor has it that Jack Mazzola of coffee shop Jack's Stir Brew might have an eye on the space, which is interesting given that at least as of last March, he and Christina Lehr were dating.
