The cleaners in the building on the east side of the street have moved around the corner to a new location. That makes 6 vacant store fronts in a row in this building. With all the focus on Franklin Ave (mostly north of EP) I find it odd that there are so many vacancies on this block. There are also 2 shuttered locations on the opposite side.
Also, why would the Cleaners move?? That is expensive. So either A) they got a much better deal in the new location, B ) the old spot was untenable for their business C) the lease came up and wasn't renewed.
