This shop was across the street from the Chamber Street mannikins I posted last summer. Racked.com reported in May 2007:

Tribeca: Ralph’s Discount City, which we glean from Downtown Express was one of the last great cheapie grocery/convenience stores south of Canal Street, has closed up shop for good. The store, located at 91-95 Chambers Street, will be torn down to make way for a 6-story condo building from developer S. Myles Group. [Downtown Express]

Found this great site through Lawrence O’Tooles Philadelphia Sign ProjectVillatype – that features urban typefaces worldwide. Saw Ideal Hosiery on this site and rummaged through my voluminous digital archive and found my shots of it.
