Reader Allison wrote to me a few days ago to let me know. She says:
"I live in the neighborhood up on Hoyt near Atlantic and was shocked to see that Iris Nails (a chain no less!), shut down. They actually called me to tell me it was happening this [past] Sunday (I'm a regular there). That their lease got bought out...It's crazy that even a chair nail salon can't survive on Smith St these days. Very sad…."
Iris Nails opened at this location in the spring of 2010. Back in 2008, the storefront was renting for $12,000 per month, which was already high at that time. One wonders how much the new tenant will be paying for this prime location.
