A well known manhattan shop i rarely frequest trying to find something not wildly overpriced and the owner is talking to someo e in the back area and it seems manhattan rentals have struck again. The store, which is much smaller than it once was, sound like it will need to close or move to a much smaller space nearby. I felt bad and wound up spending $15 on some back issues.

 That sucks, but rent increases had best be built into your business plan and budget.  Tell him to come west.

And he sells all his back issues at cover price plus a discount if you have cash :D

I hope his store isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
