MooShoes to Reopen With an All-Vegan Grocery Next Door!
During my recent trip to New York City, a visit to MooShoes was definitely on my list of things to do. Once I got to the 78 Orchard Street location, I was really disappointed to see it was closed for renovations and that it definitely would not be open during my time there.
I consoled myself with a visit to the nearby By Chloe, and reminded myself there was always the online store. Since my return, not only did I find out that vegan fashion retailer VAUTE opened up shop close by to MooShoes, but that when MooShoes itself reopens, it will be with an all-vegan grocery right next door!
According to Bowery Boogie, the current MooShoes shop is being bisected during renovations, which means:
“Not only will the shoe shop return, but the newly created retail footprint is to become a full service vegan grocery. It’s called Orchard Grocer and will feature an all-vegan deli, dry goods, and even soft serve ice cream.”
Co-owner Erica Kubersky told the publication that MooShoes will most likely reopen in the beginning of September, with the Orchard Grocer to open about a month later. While I am slightly disappointed I missed out on both shops by a matter of months, these are the kind of renovations I can definitely get behind!
