WEEKENDEDITION A controversial and recently closed 7-Eleven shop on a prime corner of St. Mark’s Place in the East Village has officially hit the leasing market.

The branch closed on November 30, to many locals – locals that prefer artisanal smoothies to artificial Slurpees — jubilation. The closure was a rare setback for the chain, which opened 27 stores in the five boroughs last year alone, giving it 124 New York City locations, according to the New York Observer.

Winick Realty Group is once again marketing the corner retail space at 87 St. Mark’s Place. The property is one of five retail spaces — two of them leased — at the address which totals 8,525 square feet. [NYO]Christopher Cameron
