GREENWICH VILLAGE—Jewelry boutique Sucre has finally landed in its new home at 9 Christopher Street with a familiar name: Selima. Officially named Selima [Heart] Sucre — just picture a red heart where those brackets are — it carries both vintage and new eyewear and jewelry. Aedes de Venustas, the perfumery that was formerly at this address, shifted down the block to 1 Christopher Street, with the entrance next to Personnel of New York on Greenwich Avenue.

Appointments are limited, so call 310-360-6268 to grab yours before they're all filled.
NOLITA—Japanese brand Edwin is planning to open a store in the neighborhood for its contemporary menswear brand END, according to WWD, though an address wasn't specified. But regardless of where it is, Deepak Gayadin has big plans to keep shoppers coming back: "Shopping has to be different. It has to be something very special that people are like, ‘Oh my God this is a really good store.'"
NEW YORK CITY—If you're wandering around Whole Foods or booking classes at Mile High Run Club or Throwback Fitness later this month, be on the lookout for WellWell, a post-workout drink created by The Meatball Shop co-founder Michael Chernow. Well + Good says it contains ingredients like watermelon and lemon juice, and does not contain ingredients like meatballs.
