Area, the Brooklyn mini chain of yoga studios, spas, as well as kids clothing and toy stores is expanding. Loretta Gendville will be opening a children's footwear and hair cutting place called "Area Kicks & Cuts" at 274 Smith Street on July 1st.
The storefront was occupied most recently by The Green Onion, which closed in March.
A children's shoe store sounds like a great idea, especially since Peek-A -Boo recently closed on Court Street.
According to the sign in the window, a similar Area shoe store/haircutting place is also opening at 335 5th Avenue.
