J&R Set For Boutique Comeback
Longtime New York retailer J&R Music and Computer World is getting back into business- as a boutique a block away from its longtime, now-shuttered location.
According to the New York Post, J&R will re-open this October as a 1,500 square-foot boutique within the clothing store Century 21.
That does not mean, however, that J&R has given up plans to redevelop its former location on Park Row.
“While we are redeveloping the block and planning the future of Park Row we wanted to answer the demand and outcry of support for J&R to remain a fixture of lower Manhattan,” J&R co-founder Rachelle Friedman told the Post.
