Jerome Avenue’s Merin Corsetiere Going Out Of Business

Merin Corsetiere, the long-lived women’s apparel business, is set to close soon according to signs posted in the window.

The business, located at 1629 Jerome Avenue, just off Sheepshead Bay Road, posted the signs late last week. We can’t recall how long it has been there – which is usually a strong indicator that it’s been there quite some time (at least 15 years, I’d say).

Everything is half price, so go shop your hearts out.

And to the owners, best of luck with whatever they choose to do next.

  1. They definitely have not been there 15 years. It used to be a fruits and vegetable stand and if I recall, they opened circa 2005-2006

  2. They were previously located on 1524a Sheepshead bay rd and the business has been around in the Sheepshead a Bay Area since the 50’s.sad to see another Sheepshead bay landmark disappear.
