THE INTERNET—Dalaga has been undergoing many changes as of late, including a new store in Nolita and a revamped website coming soon. To welcome in the new web store, everything on the current site will be 20% off until June 14th, with free shipping on all orders of $100 or more—a price that won't be hard to reach with the selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories.

COBBLE HILL—Who says nobody rents DVDs anymore? A Cobble Hill couple is trying to raise $50,000 to renovate Video Free Brooklyn. Aaron Hillis, one-half of said couple, says the store will have "that interactive experience of talking to someone knowledgeable behind the counter at all times—someone who can cater to your tastes." So you know, it'll be a lot more helpful than Netflix's never-quite-right recommendations for "Gritty Crime Thrillers" or "French Comedies With Strong Female Leads, and Cats." [Brokelyn]
