Roosevelt Island St Cabrini Thrift Store Closing Saturday August 30 To Make Way For New Urgent Care Medical Facility - Thrift Store Must Sell Everything But Can Get Lease For New Thrift Shop Say Hudson Related

The Roosevelt Island St Cabrini Thrift store

will close Saturday August 30.

A Roosevelt Island resident reports:
They are closing the thrift store. We have to be out of there by months end and MUST SELL EVERYTHING. No new space available except the old boy scouts place and that is way too small
As reported July 30:
... Roosevelt Island Retail Master Leaseholder Hudson Related has secured a new tenant for Main Street. An urgent care medical facility, Union Medical Urgent Care will be taking over the space (approximately 3800 sq. ft) currently occupied by Saint Cabrini Thrift Store.
Also, Hudson Related's David Kramer told the July 30 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Real Estate Advisory Committee about the new tenant for the the Thrift Store space and indicated a willingness to discuss a lease of an alternative space for the Thrift Shop. According to Mr. Kramer, there had been mixed signals from the Catholic Archdiocese

whether they wished to continue operating the Thrift Store, adding some said the Thrift Store was needed to raise funds and others said they can't wait to get rid of it.

Mr Kramer concluded by saying:
We would love nothing more than to sign a lease with Cabrini to have a thrift store in another space at a mutually agreeable rent and term. Then what we would want is for the Thrift Store to comply with our standards for signage and storefront and general appearance which has been an issue with some tenants.
