Nyack Business Closures, Revamps and Sales

A look at what a few local businesses have on the horizon

Many of your favorite Nyack businesses—and maybe some you don’t know—have noteworthy events approaching. Here’s a look at a few of them:

Sales, socializing and scholarships at Maria Luisa Boutique

will be hosting its second Ladies Night on Feb. 28 at 6:30 p.m. There will be no fee to attend.

"It's an open gathering," explained owner Maria Whittingham. "Last time, we watched [about Nyack's female merchants]."

The shop will also host the finalist presentations for a new, local scholarship aimed at college-bound girls in Nyack, Piermont and Rockland on March 15. Learn more about the scholarship .

On the sales front, the boutique is offering a Leap Year special on Feb. 29—customers who buy two of more items can take 29-percent off one.

Whittingham noted the store will be holding a this April, as well.


Slashed prices at Pickwick

is having a sale on cookbooks and gardening tomes as the warm weather approaches—all are 20-percent off.

Art books are also 50-percent off ($25 minimum) and used childrens book are half-off, too.


Reality Bites reformats

The Main Street eatery has locked doors and drawn curtains, but is set to expand and reopen in the coming months as a supper club that features live jazz geared at 30-somethings.

From grill to gallery

RJ's Broadway Bar and Grill closed its doors a while back—and readers have —but its sidewalk real estate isn't going to waste. Currently, the front windows have been converted into a small gallery showing off oil paintings by Nyacker Leigh-Anne Eagerton.


Knitting gear for less

on North Broadway is in the midst of a winter sale: everything in the store is 20-percent off—and select items are 75-percent off—until March 4.

Thanks for this info, Kevin. BTW: is there anything we can do to help fix (at least straighten) the Riverspace sign? It has turned into one of Nyack's biggest eyesores.

Thanks, Faith. The sign's upkeep is up to Riverspace-- best bet is to reach out to them (845.348.0741). We ran a poll a while back about what the marquee *could* be used for: http://patch.com/A-pZdK

Is its upkeep really the responsibility of Riverspace, or of the owner of the building Millbrook Properties?
