New York thrift shop set to close after 30 years due to pandemic's financial strain

Beloved local New York City store Rags a Gogo will be closing its doors due to the financial strain ensued by the coronavirus pandemic.

Owner Joshua Suzanne Ethier, who has had her shop for nearly three decades, stocking it with classics from American fashion, tells her story.

Ethier said: "I have no choice, I just threw $40,000 at my landlord like everybody else, I'm not alone in this. Unless you have a really good landlord no one got breaks anywhere in the country on their commercial rent.

"You don't go to the carnival without the rides. Right now New York City is missing the rides but they'll be back."
