Record Store Bleecker Bob’s Closing in May, FroYo To Replace It

The great NYC record store Bleecker Bob’s is closing at the end of this year, and it’s being replaced by a froyo place. While fans have known that they were closing since December of last year, a new Facebook post confirms that they’ll be out by May 2013. The post reads:

looks like the new tenant has signed the lease. we’ve heard they want to be open by June 1. it will take probably around 2 months to get work permits for the massive remodeling job they’ll need to do so we’re figuring we should be open until May 2013!!
