Mid-week roundup

La Sartoria of Saratoga moving

Saratoga's finest suit shop is relocating from its home at 506 Broadway (ground floor of Algonquin Building) to an as-yet-undisclosed location.

Owner Vincenzo Montesano told me today he's moving La Sartoria of Saratoga to somewhere else on Broadway but has yet to sign a lease, so nothing's official yet.

The shop sells fine Italian suits and women's special occasion wear and offers custom tailoring. Signs in the windows announce sales up to 70 percent off. It's unclear yet if the move is intended to downsize or expand the store.

Panza's storefront empty again

That enigmatic storefront at the corner of Spring Street and Broadway is once again empty after the latest in a series of entrepreneurs who rented the space from Frank Panza and Jenifer Flynn in the last year has vacated.

After the legal debacle with French hairstylist Philippe Bevan, who went on to open his own salon elsewhere on Broadway, 326 Broadway continued as a hair salon operated by Panza and Flynn. Then it hosted Aimee's clothing store and a sort-of art gallery.

A sign on the door directs interested renters to call Panza, who spends a lot of his time out West.

Other shops have cropped up in the side of the building along Spring Street across from Congress Park. Red Wolf opened last month, joining a couple home decorating stores there. The consignment boutique True Elegance opened then moved to Ballston Spa.

Look for more details in an upcoming edition of In the Biz, updated online throughout the week and in print every Monday.
