Park Slope Retail Report: Discounts Available at 9th St. & Fifth

December 1st, 2008 · No Comments

One place that seemed to be drawing the crowds this post-Turkey Day weekend was the brand new DII closeout center occupying a prime piece of commercial space at the corner of Ninth Street and Fifth Avenue in the Slope. DII is brought to us by the people at Dee and Dee, which once had a spot further south on Fifth Ave. that begat a Bank of America Branch. The current space meanwhile had been an Eckerd Drugs, but it closed when the chain was purchased by Rite Aid, which itself is already a block away. Brownstoner originally noted the coming of the DII back on November 11. And here we are full of closeouts in time for a very shaky holiday.

There’s very little you can say about pics like this but we do enjoy the “Incorporated 1886” remaining on the old window of what must have once been a gorgeous building.
