Posted back in March that the Barney’s Co-Op at 2151 Broadway (between 75th & 76th) is slated to undergo a renovation and re-branding. As you can see in the photo above, that process has begun.
Looks like gift/toy store Maxiga has closed — the windows are papered up and no one is answering their phone at their 2233 Broadway location (between 79th & 80th). Maxiga opened on the Upper West Side back in September 2011 (this space used to house a Best Buy Mobile store).

It was all the way back in January that Juice Press announced it was planning to open two Upper West Side stores. As is common with these things, it took longer than expected to happen, but the first UWS Juice Press opened for business last week at 73 W. 82nd (between Columbus & CPW).

Got a note from the folks at clothing retailer Brooklyn Industries about a shopping event tomorrow afternoon (Saturday, 4/20) that might be of interest: They’re launching their Summer 2013 collection with free mimosas and a 20% discount of one full-priced item.
Posted yesterday about Gymboree closing shop at 2271 Broadway (between 81st & 82nd). Thanks to a tip from a reader, it looks like there may be more to this story.
Wrote back in October about Park West, a bistro from the owner of neighborhood stalwart Pomodoro that was slated for 103 W. 70th (between Amsterdam & Columbus). Six months later, it’s finally here — the bar/restaurant opened its doors on Saturday night.
