Buffalo Exchange, the buy-sell-trade vintage clothing store with a nationwide presence, opened a new shop in Cobble Hill last Saturday, the company announced in a press release yesterday. The new store marks the company’s fourth in New York City, with other shops in Williamsburg, Chelsea and the East Village.

The Cobble Hill store is located at 109 Boerum Place between Pacific and Dean streets. The store formerly housed Re/Dress NYC, a plus-size vintage and modern clothing store that catered to sizes 14 and up (see video about Re/Dress NYC closing here). Re/Dress owner Deb Malkin shuttered her store in November after three years in business due to pricey overhead costs. Her store now operates online.

Buffalo Exchange’s new sublease extends until December 2017, a company spokesperson told The Real Deal. No brokers were involved with the deal, according to the spokesperson. The store is 2,740 square feet. Buffalo Exchange wouldn’t reveal the rents. Retail spaces in that area of Cobble Hill have rents ranging from $70 per square foot to $85 per square foot, according to LoopNet.com.

According to the store spokesperson, Buffalo Exchange is currently looking for other New York City store locations.
