Annie Sez and Mandee at 6401 18th Avenue.

An over 10-year fixture in the south Brooklyn nabe, Bensonhurst’s Annie Sez and Mandee stores will be closing for good at the end of next month.

According to signage posted plentifully, both outside and inside of the stores, the unique double-storefront space will see its lease expire at the end of January, with no word yet on who will occupy the 24,033 square foot lot, which sits at the corner of 18th Avenue and 64th Street.

According to a frequent shopper, who partook in the stores’ “50 percent off of everything” closing promotion, the environment on Christmas Eve was slightly hectic and overall, a little somber.

“It was very busy,” the shopper told this paper. “Usually there are only one or two cashiers but there were about four people working at the check-out counter on Saturday and there were sale signs all over.

“I overheard a woman telling the checkout person that she was kind of upset that it was closing,” the shopper continued, “she said she had been shopping there for about 10 years.”

It appears that the stores’ “everything must go sale” will continue throughout January, until the official closing.

There is currently one other Annie Sez store in Brooklyn (on Coney Island Avenue near Kings Highway) and three other Mandee stores in the borough (Atlantic Terminal, Fifth Avenue in Park Slope and Avenue U near Nostrand Avenue).

Representatives from either store could not be reached for comment before press time.
