Lost the Lease

G & M Mens' Suit Outlet, at 538 Fifth, is closing, having lost its lease. Also, I saw online that the space long occupied by Max's Beauty Supply & Salon is for lease,

along with the plumbing supply store premises at Fifth & Prospect. And something worrying relating to a nearby diner (no, no, no).  I hate these ads. Sometimes they linger online for months (even years) with no apparent activity, and sometimes nothing seems to come from them (the bingo hall?), but they raise alarm, and suggest the inevitable.   All of these businesses represent the older face of business on the avenue.  The Tip Top store, which closed a year ago, has got the brown paper treatment, so we'll see the replacement soon enough.
