RETAIL CHURN: FUR, BOOZE & YOGURT

Out: the oldest of Red Bank’s three frozen yogurt shops.

It’s the never-ending Churn…

• A sign in the window of the former Agostino Antiques, which was in wind-down mode at 21 Broad Street for many months, indicates the next tenant will be Steven Corn Furs.

Owner Steven Corn did not return a call from redbankgreen seeking comment. The company’s website says the business was launched by Corn’s grandfather in New York City in 1898 and now has stores in midtown Manhattan and Paramus.

Corn would be the town’s second furrier, joining Winters Furs on Monmouth Street.

• Also not returning calls: Bharat Patel, who’s listed in town records as the contact for Royal Wines and Spirits. According to signs in the papered-over windows at 24 White Street, Royal is coming soon to the 2,000-square-foot spot, at the corner of English Plaza. It follows Space Interiors, which decamped to Deal earlier this year.

The Bharat Patel who owns On the Rocks Wine & Liquor on Shrewsbury Avenue says he knows nothing about the White Street business.

Downtown Red Bank already has three liquor stores: Heritage Liquors, at Broad and East Front streets; the Wine Cellar, on Monmouth; and Red Bank Liquors, on West Street.

• As reported on redbankgreen‘s Facebook page, Danny Natale held an auction Monday for all the equipment in his Frozsürt frozen yogurt shop at 6 Monmouth Street.

The business, which opened in 2010, has kept spotty hours in recent months as it struggled to compete with two new, nearby competitors: Kravings, on Broad Street, and Yo Mon, in the City Centre shopping center on Water Street.

Natale could not be reached for comment.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
