More Fashion Soup: “There Are Two Sides to Every Story”

Fashion Soup, Midtown NYCGot this in the old inbox re: this morning’s eulogy to Fashion Soup: “I know someone very close to the landlord of 1440 Bway (Fashion Soup building) – here’s their side of the story – it was typical lease renewal dispute. The Fashion Soup lease was up, she (the owner) wanted generous relocation terms (e.g. 6 months notice to break lease and move out), and the building wouldn’t give them to her. They say she also seemed tired of running the business due to razor thin margins and lack of summer customer flow and is unlikely to relocate (thus the fire sale of the equipment). Two sides to every story I suppose, and I hate to see an independent with a good product give up, but that’s business.”
