Moishe’s Kosher Bake Shop in the East Village has closed its doors, Eater reported.
A sign outside says the store is currently closed for renovations but photographers James and Karla Murray told Eater that owner Moishe Perl said the store had been cleared out due to the building’s sale.
Furthermore, an long-time patron confirmed to AMNY that the location on Second Avenue, which opened 42 years ago, has closed and workers are searching for new jobs.
Pearl allegedly told the patron he sold the three-story building on as part of a real estate deal.
Moishe’s has become a popular East Village spot over the years and was well-known for its Hamantashin and other Kosher specialties.
A second location on Grand Street will remain open.
