Rituals Is Moving Out Of Nolita To Soho
489 Broadway has been many things since they kicked out the classic “Soho Cafe” last year including a Ricky’s Pop-Up.
The owner of the building, Harold Sherr, was asking $1,200 per square foot for 1,200 square feet of space, and supposedly got $1,000 or so ($120,000 a month for 1,200 square feet!)
The tenant is Rituals cosmetics which has been at 231 Lafayette street in Nolita since 2014.
In the year 2000 founder Raymond Cloosterman started his adventure from a deeply rooted passion: “I passionately believe that we can transform our daily routines into more meaningful moments if we pay just a little bit more attention to the details. This philosophy led to a unique concept of combining home and body cosmetics, and this is how RITUALS… was born. With a luxurious collection of high quality products to enrich body and soul we offer anything from body and facial care to scented candles, clothing, perfumes, gemstone make-up, and tea.”
