The West Village's Lovely Bridal Shop has just filled its "something new" quota. The Commercial Observer reports that the boutique has signed a ten-year lease for a store at 182 Duane Street, which comes complete with a small backyard patio. Before settling in Tribeca, the company scouted out locations in Chelsea, the Far West Side, and Flatiron.
But it was Duane Street that did it. One of the reps from the deal explains, "This space just blew them away. When they walked in the door they fell in love. It was just what they were looking for because it's got a great feel to it, very clean-looking, with great ceiling heights." A move in date hasn't been announced yet, but in the meantime, brides-to-be can schedule an appointment at the West 4th Street store.
