Foot Gear Plus has closed on 1st Avenue
Foot Gear Plus is now closed on the southwest corner of First Avenue and St. Mark’s Place.As we first reported back on July 11, Tony Scifo, who opened the shop here in 1980, recently made the difficult decision to close his family-fun business on July 31.Scifo told this to EVG contributor Stacie Joy:”After several years of peaks and valleys in business there were just too many valleys. Companies now sell direct to consumers and once they started offering free shipping it was all over. This is happening everywhere, not just locally. The landlord wanted us to stay. She offered us a fair price and she’s been great. We just couldn’t make it.” No word just yet on who the next tenant might be in this high-profile corner space.
