Spykes, the risqué undergarment and footwear store that opened four years ago on Shrewsbury Avenue, has reduced its hours. A handwritten note on the door says the business is now open only from 3 to 6p Mondays and 12 to 6p Wednesdays.
A large sale sign is hung across the stores display window, and another says the place is for rent. But the purveyor of lambskin thigh-high stiletto boots and lacy bustiers isnt going bust: its relocating, according to the note. To where, it doesnt say, and owner Mary Jennings couldnt be reached for details.
We hear, though, that Spykes is moving around the corner to the former Gasper Sign shop on Bridge Avenue, opposite the train station. If that turns out to be wrong, spank us.
