NEW YORK CENTRAL ART SUPPLY IN DANGER OF CLOSING

Another landmark art store in New York is now in danger of closing its doors due to sales slumps in the digital age. New York Central Art Supply, a 110 year old store still owned and operated by the same family that opened it, will follow in the steps of Pearl Paint, once the biggest art supply store in New York, which shuttered it's doors in April of 2014.

For those of you living in New York and for those of you visiting the city, take a visit to New York Art Supply, conveniently located at 62 Third Avenue!  You may also download their art supply catalog and place an order! http://www.nycentralart.com/
