How to shop for furniture and decor in New York City
Anand furniture shops, a popular shop on the Upper East Side, are closing on March 1, and anand is offering up to 30% off their online store.
The shop is in the space that was formerly home to the New York Times and a cafe called The Coffeehouse.
Anand says it’s not because of the recession, but because they’ve had to cut their staff.
“We have more than 30 employees who have lost their jobs,” Anand said.
“Our store has gone through many cuts.
I think the worst part is the recession.”
The store has had to make room for a smaller staff as well.
The move comes on the heels of a decision by a New York State agency to close the space.
Anands owner says they will reopen at a later date, but it’s a bittersweet moment for the shop.
“I don’t feel that this is the right time for this store,” Ananda said.
Anand has not commented on the closure of the shop or the agency that is handling it.
