Shutter Announcements: David's Bagels Pushed Out By Hot & Crusty Chain

New, 24 comments

East Village: According to Jeremiah's Vanishing, the 21 year-old bagel shop and go-to spot for East Village residents, David's Bagels, is set to close at the end of August. It's not rising rents, and it's not slow business. Instead the shutter is all due to the new chain store Hot & Crusty: "I spoke with the owner, Vilai Wangkeo, and she told me that since the landlord opened a Hot & Crusty franchise next door, 'He doesn't want the competition,' so her lease will not be renewed." This comes as somewhat of a double blow to the locals who weren't jonesing for the upscale deli chain in the first place.
