Reader Elizabeth Shelton sent in the news, along with a video interview of their salesman Mike for #SaveNYC.

He says the shop is closing for "economic reasons--rent and everything else that goes along with it."

I'm sorry to hear this. I still have a pair of Speedo brand running tights that I bought from this store in the late 80s!

This was a great place for leotards and tights which I purchased from them back in the 70's. It was a fixture in the area which has changed.
