The Alamedas did not want to close their business, but were not offered a new lease by their landlord.
A sign in the store reads:
It is with great sadness that we are announcing the closure of our labor of love, otherwise known as Perfect Corner. We would like to thank all our loyal customers who have walked through our doors since opening day in September 2003. We will miss being part of this vibrant neighborhood and the wonderful art that we we were able to display that represents the best of Carroll Gardens. And of course, to all the admirers that have appreciated our annual Holiday train displays, we apologize for not putting them up this year.
Unfortunately, we were unable to come to a reasonable negotiation with our landlord to continue our business. Due to the time and expense necessary in putting together such a specialty store, we find ourselves not in a position to relocate elsewhere. We look forward to the next chapter in our life.
Warmest regards, Marion and JoeMost likely, the space will now be leased to yet another restaurant, bar or chain store, the only businesses that can afford the ever rising retail rents on Smith Street.
What a pity.
Take advantage of Perfect Corner closing sale, going on right now.
