A Storefront In NYC For Only $7 A Day!
Have you always dreamed of opening up a store in a trendy neighborhood? Do you have $7? If you answered yes to both of these questions, your dreams may very well be on the cusp of coming true, albeit in a half-assed sort of way. Shopping Box, a new store in New York City’s Soho neighborhood (famous for its high rents and posh stores and restaurants), offers small display spots in their shop for $7 a day — less if your box isn’t in the window at eye level. Apparently, this business model is common in Japan and vendors can use the space to sell old accessories, new crafts, whatever. It sounds a lot like real-life eBay to us. Think it’ll work? [Racked]
